Sally Kohn

Watch out, Rachel Maddow! Sally Kohn is some serious competition. A Brooklyn-based, progressive journalist who contributes to CNN and The Daily Beast, Kohn has garnered notice from The New York Times and The Colbert Report. What´s more, Mediaite called her one of the top 100 most influential American television pundits. The former senior campaign strategist with the Center for Community Change and one-time executive director for the Third Wave Foundation sees her current media position as a way of drumming up even more attention for the values she´s passionate about. ″I made a pivot from community organizing to being a writer and talking head because I wanted to help create a bigger stage for social justice ideas and values. Talking to 100 people about change and fairness is one thing; talking to a million is entirely something else. And stepping into that spotlight is a way to harness that power and attention for the issues and voices I believe in. So it´s not just me talking, but I´m helping to shed light on other leaders, other folks living the issues we´re talking about, [and] making sure more diverse voices and perspectives across the board are not just talked about but doing the talking.″ – GH
