After serving as the National Executive Director for the last two years at Progress Now and six years prior to that at Democracy For America, Arshad is offering his talents and experience to political and non-profit organizations around the country. His leadership at both organizations was innovative, results-driven, and growth-oriented.
Arshad began his professional political career in the environmental movement saving forests, lambasting coal plants, and even infiltrating a cruise ship to discuss wastewater treatment with the passengers. Arshad credits his first spark of political awareness to his high school principal who went too far in censoring his paper. In his spare time, Arshad enjoys yoga, learning how to bake, having a night on the town, and attempting to coordinate travel plans with his equally travel-crazy husband.
