Vice-President of Public Policy of Americans United for Separation of Church and State.

Maggie has been working on church-state separation issues for nearly 20 years.  Before joining AU’s policy department, she worked at the ACLUs of Alabama and Georgia. She now represents Americans United before Congress and the Trump Administration, and she oversees the state legislative program. She is the co-chair of the National Coalition for Public Education, a coalition of more than 50 national organizations that opposes private school vouchers. She is also the chair of the Coalition Against Religious Discrimination (CARD), which is the national coalition that fights against policies that allow religiously affiliated social service organizations to use taxpayer funds to discriminate. Maggie graduated from Hamilton College, cum laude, and graduated with honors from The George Washington Law School, where she was the Production Editor of The George Washington Law Review. In 2016, she was awarded the Allen Thornell Political Advancement Award from Georgia Equality for being "the most responsive attorney in reviewing legislative language" they've ever worked with and for her diligence and dedication to the First Amendment.
