Molly Kaplan

Senior Multimedia Strategist in New York

Everyday, I think about how to synthesize the most fraught and complicated socio-political issues of our time into a video or a photo that allows people to engage, question and reckon.

Since 2012, I have filmed, edited, directed or produced almost 200 videos for the American Civil Liberties Union, and in 2015 alone, videos views reached 5.5 million between Facebook and YouTube. I oversee all ACLU photography including staff portraits, the ACLU's merchandise store and its documentary series. The ACLU's videos and in-house photography have appeared on The Guardian, The New York Times, CNN, Entertainment Weekly, MSNBC, Huffington Post, Jezebel, E Online, USA Today, the Hollywood Reporter, Al Jazeera, Salon, and The Washington Post.

In 2015, the ACLU's Lewis Black video on voting suppression laws was nominated for a Webby Award. In 2016, "Sasheer Zamata Says Women's Rights Still a BFD" was nominated for a DoGooder Funny for Good Award.
