Robert Creamer

Political Organizer, Strategist, Author, Partner Democracy Partners

Robert Creamer has been a political organizer and strategist for four decades. He and his firm, Democracy Partners, work with many of the country’s most significant issue campaigns. He was one of the major architects and organizers of the successful campaign to defeat the privatization of Social Security. He has been a consultant to the campaigns to end the war in Iraq, pass universal health care, pass Wall Street reform, change America’s budget priorities, enact comprehensive immigration reform, promulgate new employer overtime rules, and pass the Nuclear Agreement with Iran. He has also worked on hundreds of electoral campaigns at the local, state and national level -- and served as a consultant to the DNC and President Obama's campaigns in 2008, 2012 and 2016 -- and is heavily involved in "the Resistance". Creamer is married to Congresswoman Jan Schakowsky from Illinois. Arianna Huffington calls his book, Stand Up Straight: How Progressives Can Win, a master’s class in electoral politics.
