Our Team

Our team consists of three key groups who work together to complete our mission for Americans to find common ground and take action to create a more responsive government.


The People's Executive Board

The Executive Board has control of, and is responsible for, the management of the affairs and property of the Corporation. The Board is composed of key outside directors who are experienced in strategy, finance, operations, and development. They have typical rights and fiduciary responsibility of a legal Board of Directors and include our officers: President, Secretary, and Treasurer.  Learn more about our Executive Board members.


National House of Delegates

Pictured above, our National House of Delegates is made up of 39 volunteers from across the country. They serve as our governing body and the heartbeat of this organization. The People’s House of Delegates works in conjunction with the Executive Board and staff to be an advocate of The People’s work.


Katie Fahey
Executive Director

An experienced leader in the democratic reform movement, Katie leads The People in its mission to empower individuals to get involved in the political process. Previously, Katie was the Executive Director of Voters Not Politicians (VNP), where she led over 14,000 volunteers across Michigan to pass a ballot proposal with 61% of the vote that made political gerrymandering illegal. Prior to VNP, she worked in the garbage and recycling industry.
