Ashley leads Mozilla’s work to fuel the open internet movement and mobilize millions to stand up for a free, open web. Mozilla’s mission is ambitious: making the health of the internet a mainstream issue. It is also vital: as centralization, surveillance, exclusion and other online threats proliferate, we need a movement to keep the web a global public resource.
Ashley works with other teams within Mozilla, with ally organizations and with digital citizens around the world through advocacy campaigns and public education initiatives.
Prior to joining Mozilla, Ashley was Vice President & Chief Field Officer for MomsRising, a national grassroots organization in the U.S. As a founding staff member, she was instrumental in building MomsRising into an organization of one million grassroots supporters, 200 partner organizations and over 20 funding partners.
