Facilitator, Campaigner, and Technology Strategist in Washington, DC
Michael Silberman leads the Mobilisation Lab, a global innovation, training, and research hub dedicated to enabling a diverse network of change-makers to build a more just, peaceful, and sustainable world. Amidst growing threats — to people, the planet, and the very right to advocate for change — MobLab equips campaigners around the world with the strategies, tools, tactics, and partners needed to win in the digital era.
A senior digital campaigns strategist, Silberman is recognized as one of the U.S.’s 50 most influential leaders by The NonProfit Times and one of LinkedIn’s "Top Professionals 35 and Under” transforming the social impact sector. He teaches digital-era advocacy and campaigning to graduate students as adjunct faculty with George Washington University's School of Media and Public Affairs.
Silberman got his start on Governor Howard Dean’s 2004 presidential campaign where he built one of the first successful digital organising programs in American politics and mobilised over 200,000 grassroots volunteers through “meetups”. Prior to launching the MobLab, Silberman was a partner and co-founder at Echo & Co, an award-winning digital strategy firm.
