Janet Groat, Massachusetts Organizing Manager
Janet Groat joined Mothers Out Front in April 2017 as the Massachusetts Organizing Manager. Janet brings a rich history as an organizer, strategist, and trainer to her new position, with a particular interest in team building and fostering successful structures for shared leadership. As Regional Manager for Moms Demand Gun Sense in America, she coached five state-based chapters, cultivated leaders, worked with teams to activate and track voters and met the challenges head on. Janet has a Masters in Public Administration from the Kennedy School of Government at Harvard University. With the knowledge that many of the solutions to climate change, as well as the political will, will come from those most affected, Janet is excited to work on the strategic effort to elevate their voices.
