Sarah Baron is an associate director of Campaigns at American Progress, where she helps create and execute issue advocacy campaigns.

Previously, she was the campaign manager of Early Childhood at American Progress and launched and led the organization’s child care advocacy campaign to ensure the issue became part of the national debate during the 2016 election. Before that, Baron was the state advocacy coordinator for the Center for American Progress Action Fund—where she worked with state partners and created actionable content to advance progressive policies through organizing, communications, and policy advocacy—and the field associate for the Half in Ten campaign and Poverty to Prosperity Program at American Progress—where she managed the campaign’s storyteller action network.
