FAMM welcomes Adam Bingman as new VP of Communications
WASHINGTON – FAMM President Kevin Ring today announced the hiring of Adam Bingman as Vice President of Communications.
“We are excited to have Adam take the helm of our talented communications team,” Ring said. “He is a proven leader and has the experience and passion for change we were looking for. I am excited to watch him elevate the stories and experiences of our members to create meaningful and lasting reform.”
Before joining FAMM, Bingman served as National Press Secretary at Sierra Club, the nation’s oldest and largest grassroots advocacy organization.
“I am honored to join FAMM as Vice President of Communications at this critical time in our movement,” Bingman said. “Transformative criminal justice reforms are proven to make direct positive impacts in both the lives of our loved ones and our communities, which is why I am eager to get to work by fighting for our families and to lead a dynamic team of communicators and community of advocates who are also dedicated to this mission.”
As a strong believer and witness to unified ‘people power,’ Bingman believes it takes all of us to work towards building a more just and equitable society, while growing and supporting the communities we each call home.
“It’s an honor to continue my career of service and advocacy with FAMM in a role that is focused on both growing and empowering our community of advocates across the country to achieve big wins for our families and those who experience the criminal justice system,” Bingman added. “Over the course of my career, I’ve grown to admire the people and our collective power towards reaching meaningful change – and I look forward to this journey with FAMM.”
For more than a decade, Bingman has served in integral and strategic roles within advocacy organizations that mobilize everyday people and achieve policy wins proven transformative for impacted communities.
