    From hunger to human rights, public transportation to public art, and urban forestry to foreign policy, Eli Lipmen is a leader in developing and executing strategies for social change.

    Eli has worked with nonprofits large and small to improve donor engagement and outreach efforts, including the Los Angeles Regional Food Bank, AJC, Homeless Health Care Los Angeles, and Move LA. In 2014, he wrote and designed a major white paper on hunger in Los Angeles County and led social media engagement for a global conference that drew millions of impressions. He has rebranded and launched websites, redesigned newsletters and end-of-year e-fundraising campaigns that raised millions of dollars online, and created strategies that took a social media presence from non-existent to become a leader in the industry. In addition, Eli has developed performance metrics and organized grassroots lobbying efforts for large-scale advocacy campaigns.

    Eli attended the University of Southern California’s Annenberg School for Communications and the London School of Economics where he studied global media and communications. He was appointed to the Los Angeles City Commission overseeing local Neighborhood Councils, the largest system to integrate grassroots democracy into local governance in the United States.
