Adrianne Shropshire is executive director of BlackPAC and the affiliated nonpartisan Black Progressive Action Coalition. She is a leader in developing model integrated voter engagement programs that build voter power over multiple election cycles.
Adrianne, along with Black progressive leaders from across the country, founded BlackPAC in 2016 to develop a sustainable infrastructure for Black political engagement. As executive director, she oversees BlackPAC’s research and political strategy, coordinating with grassroots community organizations in states across the country on electoral and issue-based campaigns in Black communities and with allied communities. Since BlackPAC’s start, she has raised millions of dollars and designed programs to engage hundreds of thousands of voters—leading to some of the most significant progressive victories of the post-2016 era.
Adrianne began her political work as a community organizer in California, where she organized in South Los Angeles neighborhoods around police accountability, economic justice, and youth empowerment. She continued her community-focused leadership through labor, community, faith and economic justice campaigns in NYC, and she advises labor unions, grassroots organizations and political donors on fostering strategic relationships between progressive stakeholders.
