Advisory Council

The Center for Democracy & Technology’s (CDT) Advisory Council brings new insight and expertise to our policy advocacy work. “The best policy outcomes happen when all voices engage in an honest, constructive dialogue. The diversity of views and experiences of this stellar group of individuals will help CDT be an even more effective and influential organization. I’m incredibly grateful for their commitment to advancing our mission,” said CDT President & CEO Nuala O’Connor.

The Advisory Council operates separately from CDT’s Board of Directors. It is co-chaired by Nancy Libin of Davis Wright Tremaine LLP and Donna Epps of Verizon. Members serve in their personal capacity, and organizational affiliations are listed for identification purposes only.
