Tate Hausman runs high-impact projects and campaigns for progressive organizations and candidates. He thinks government can be a force of good if it puts people before profits.
Tate’s experience straddles the political and nonprofit worlds. He is currently the interim Executive Director of the Analyst Institute, an independent center that uses insights from behavioral science and rigorous experiments to help progressives win their campaigns. There, he helps a diverse range of progressive allies figure out what actually works when it comes to persuading, registering and turning out voters, supporters and donors.
Before joining the Analyst Institute, Tate spent a couple years as the Director of Management at MoveOn.org, helping MoveOn grow and adapt in the ever-changing world of online organizing. He has directed a number of other national political operations, such as Vote Today Ohio, a voter mobilization effort that helped swing Ohio to Barack Obama; and Slam Bush, a hip-hop voter registration drive in 2004. He has worked for two Congressional campaigns (John Hall, Donna Edwards), one gubernatorial (Arianna Huffington), and multiple state, municipal and issue campaigns.
In tandem with his campaign work, Tate has consulted for high-impact organizations like CREDO Mobile/Working Assets, the Common Ground, Iraq and Afghanistan Vets of America, and the Working Families Party. He spent two years as Director of Strategy at Free Range Studios, where he wrote, produced and marketed viral video hits like The Meatrix and Store Wars. His career started at AlterNet.org, where as managing editor he helped transition the offline wire service into a dynamic online community. Tate graduated from Brown University with an honors degree in Education.
Tate’s mission is to build a long-term progressive majority that advances a just, fair agenda for all Americans.
