Christopher Herrera

Christopher has worked in social change communications for more than 20 years. After graduating from UCLA he spent seven years at the American Civil Liberties Union of Southern California, eventually serving as the Director of Public Education. At the ACLU, he worked on a wide variety of issues including immigrant rights, reproductive justice, voting rights, affirmative action, equal access to education, opposition to capital punishment, and civic engagement.

In 2000, he became the first Communications Director at San Francisco-based Tides Foundation, developing communication platforms and websites around grantmaking initiatives on economic justice, environmental sustainability, reproductive justice, Indigenous rights, and international grantmaking. He also served as the executive producer for the online film and interactive website The Story of Stuff.

Christopher joined RAN in 2014 and remains in continuous awe at the commitment, intelligence, and relentless bad-assery of his colleagues. He is still awaiting his first call up to the U.S. Men’s National Team.
