Sayre E. Reece

Deputy Director, Strategic Advancement


Washington, DC

Relationship-builder, problem solver, dot connector, trainer, camper, water lover and bow-tie wearer. Since 1992, Sayre has been in the trenches of progressive candidate and issue campaigns. Sayre’s most challenging yet rewarding roles were as the ’04 KY “NO on the Amendment” (marriage) Campaign Manager and the ’08 CA “NO on Proposition 8” (marriage) Statewide Field Director — which collectively raised over $2M, mobilized over 50K volunteers and identified nearly 200K pro-LGBT voters. Sayre is passionate about organizing, the power of collective action, racial justice, ballot measures, being a Kentuckian, sashimi, and being legally married to their wife Kathleen since 2008. In addition to their campaign expertise, Sayre is an organizational leadership and learning specialist and one of 100 Certified Biomimicry Professionals globally. As a biomimic, they ask nature for inspiration in applying nature inspired design to organizational development. Sayre’s goal is to catalyze the bridging of regenerative design and traditional ecological knowledge and the rewilding of individual resiliency and renewal to increase the health and well-being of those working towards the liberation of all people and our planet.
