Megan Martin

Executive Vice President

She, Her, Hers


I lead the policy team and direct and advance CSSP’s policy agenda. As part of this work, I work with policy partners and policymakers to advance policy that is good for families through its creation and implementation. I work to promote equity and inclusivity in all of our organizational policy work, as well as part of external policy conversations.

I do this work because

Policy impacts everyone—it isn’t just a boring and technical thing; it affects the way people live their lives. I am committed to ensuring that communities of color, people who identify as LGBTQ, and people who are from immigrant families benefit from public policy.
