“Oxfam’s focus on building power and bringing the voices of marginalized communities into the political debate is what draws me here. Being able to engage with the experiences, challenges, and hopes of communities—globally and domestically—that have been impacted by the injustices of poverty is a gift. The work is hard, yet the impact can be significant.”

Gina is currently the acting VP of Policy and Advocacy and also Director of Campaigns, setting the strategic direction for Oxfam’s advocacy campaigns and developing the team structures to support them. She also served for six years as Oxfam’s Organizing and Alliances Manager, where she developed the Sisters on the Planet ambassadors program, as well as alliances with chefs and other key allies.

Prior to joining Oxfam, Gina was Chief Operating Officer of Physicians for Human Rights, a nongovernmental organization that uses medicine and science to document and advocate against mass atrocities and severe human rights violations around the world. She managed day-to-day operations and supervised senior teams that oversaw policy, media, and fundraising work; forensic investigations; research; campaigns; and human resources.

Gina’s work included looking at the impact of torture in Guantanamo prison; juvenile justice in the US; asylum and human rights in Afghanistan, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Chechnya, Sierra Leone and Rwanda; and forensic investigations to determine crimes against humanity and genocide in Guatemala, Honduras, Rwanda, Iraq, and Afghanistan. She also served as the organization’s Director of Campaigns, organizing medical and nursing school programs, and establishing partnerships and projects with Partners In Health, the American Public Health Association, and other health-related organizations.
