What a joy to connect with Nathaniel Stinnett, someone who is making a real difference in the world through a beautiful idea: activate environmental voters to promote a more sustainable and healthy future for all of us. Nathaniel Stinnett went from being a successful land use attorney, to becoming known as ‘The Voting Guru.’ Now he is taking all of that experience and channeling it into the Environmental Voter Project.
Nathaniel Stinnett founded the Environmental Voter Project in 2015 after over a decade of experience as a senior advisor, consultant, and trainer for political campaigns and issue-advocacy nonprofits. Dubbed “The Voting Guru” by Grist magazine, Stinnett was named one of America’s 50 environmental visionaries, and he is a frequent expert speaker on cutting-edge campaign techniques at top universities and campaign management trainings.
He has held a variety of senior leadership and campaign manager positions on U.S. Senate, Congressional, state, and mayoral campaigns, and he sits on the Board of Advisors for MIT’s Environmental Solutions Initiative. Formerly an attorney at the international law firm DLA Piper LLP, Stinnett holds a B.A. from Yale University and a J.D. from Boston College Law School. He lives in Boston, MA with his wife and two daughters.
