Amanda Thayer has returned to Global Strategy Group as VP-communications and public affairs following a four-year stint at NARAL Pro-Choice America.

NARAL, which is a client of GSG, advocates for access to abortions, birth control, paid parental leave, as well as non-discrimination against pregnant women.

As NARAL’s senior deputy director of national & political communications, Thayer played a key role in the group’s fierce opposition to Donald Trump’s Supreme Court nominees Neil Gorsuch, Brett Kavanaugh and Amy Coney Barret, for the threat they pose to reproductive freedom.

She also led communications strategy for NARAL’s record-setting expenditure during the 2020 election.

Thayer joined NARAL from GSG, where she was manager for communications and public affairs.

Earlier, she did a four-year stint at The Moffett Group, the firm of former Democratic Connecticut Congressman Toby Moffett.
