NEW YORK, NY — Today, Color Of Change announced that Arisha Hatch, formerly Managing Director of Campaigns at Color Of Change, has been promoted to the new role of Vice President, Chief of Campaigns.
For the past seven years, Arisha has helped to grow Color Of Change into a next generation force for social change. From pushing Silicon Valley companies to undergo intensive civil rights audits to managing effective advocacy campaigns in the media, economic, cultural, and criminal justice spaces, Arisha has established a track record of effective leadership and tangible legislative and corporate accountability wins.
“Like many of my colleagues here at Color Of Change, I come to this job each and every day focused first on empowering our members to improve the lives of Black folks and build lasting political power for Black people,” said Arisha Hatch, Color Of Change’s new Vice President, Chief of Campaigns. “I’m proud of what we’ve built and accomplished in the last seven years and look forward to propelling Color Of Change to higher heights, not only in the struggle for racial justice but the broader fight for progressive change.”
Since joining the Color Of Change team, Arisha has overseen campaigns demanding accountability across various industries. This includes encouraging Black joy and civic participation through Black Women’s Brunches; leading the charge in demanding RCA drop R. Kelly from their label; and calling on governors to protect, not imprison, victims of sexual abuse. In this new role of Vice President, Chief of Campaigns, Arisha will serve as second-in-command in Color Of Change’s leadership structure while also leading organization-wide evaluations and benchmarking – working with a talented team of internal leaders who are scaling the group’s reach, power and impact.
“Arisha came to Color Of Change when we were less than 10 staffers inside of a shared office in the Bay. Over the years, she has been a key thought partner and strategic driver of our impact and growth,” said Rashad Robinson, President of Color Of Change. “This promotion and new role are a recognition of Arisha’s talent, expertise and commitment to the work, and are a part of our evolving leadership structure working to meet the challenges of a larger, more complex infrastructure, which requires a deeper leadership bench.”
Arisha is based in Color Of Change’s Washington, D.C. office.
