Robert Becker has been managing political campaigns and implementing communication strategies around the world for over twenty-five years. He has worked on five US presidential campaigns — including former UN Ambassador Bill Richardson's 2008 campaign.
Becker has put his "boots-on-the-ground" organizing and training political activists in countries emerging from repressive regimes like Zimbabwe, Indonesia, Rwanda, Haiti, Libya and Egypt.
In the US, Becker has worked on Democratic Party campaigns in twenty states and managed several ground-breaking efforts, including Colorado Congressman Jared Polis’ historic 2008 victory.
Becker, now exiled from Cairo, is one of the foreign nationals charged in Egypt’s 2011 crackdown on civil society organizations. A Los Angeles Times profile described his work around the world as having "instilled a keen sense for sound bites, plotting strategy and, in countries such as Egypt, guiding activists and fledgling politicians emerging from decades of repression.”
In 2013 he founded The Tanzeem Group, a progressive grassroots organizing and strategic communications firm.
