Meet the people working on our mission

48percent.org is the brainchild of Devhouse Spindle and Voys. Both of these organizations were founded on the values of privacy, equality, and openness. The story for these organizations, and eventually 48percent.org, started in 2003. Our 48percent.org team is comprised of colleagues from both organizations that use their experience and talents from different fields to further the 48percent.org purpose.

She contributes her non-profit knowledge and genuine belief in our mission to make sure that the foundation moves forward both in the strategic and administrative sense.
