Update: Feed the Truth’s Incoming Leadership Team
As Feed the Truth prepares to launch the next phase of its work, we are pleased to announce the appointment of Nick Guroff as our Director of Communications and TJ Faircloth as our Director of Research effective January 2021. Both Nick and TJ join Feed the Truth from Corporate Accountability—an organization that has been at the forefront of stopping corporate abuse—where they served as part of the organization’s senior management team to develop, launch, and scale high-impact campaigns on a wide range of issues from water privatization to corporate capture of climate policy.
For more than a decade, Nick directed communications for Corporate Accountability, leading global media and digital outreach campaigns that have reached tens of millions of people. He helped pioneer Corporate Accountability’s work to develop and execute communications strategies to expose corporate political interference and curb junk food marketing to children. His team’s work was featured in Bite Back: People Taking on Corporate Food and Winning, a compilation of essays on food democracy. Prior to Feed the Truth, Nick also served as deputy director for another impressive organization in the corporate accountability and human rights space, International Rivers. There he helped develop communications and fundraise for a range of initiatives on biodiversity, dam decommissioning, Indigenous, and gender rights. Outside of his advocacy work, Nick has also reported on a range of topics from press freedoms to immigrant rights for a range of media outlets including PBS’s FRONTLINE/World.
TJ joins Feed the Truth after 13 years at Corporate Accountability, where he helped build and lead its research team and developed cutting edge initiatives such as the Liability Roadmap, a campaign that advances liability against corporations for climate change denial, fraud, and impact. His team also worked closely with partner organizations across the Global South to advance groundbreaking policy to safeguard global, regional, and state policies from industry interference, while progressing new mechanisms for holding corporations legally liable for their “externalities.” He has previously worked for Greenpeace U.S., Natural Resources Defense Council, and United Farm Workers. His expertise in strategic corporate research coupled with his deep experience in building teams of campaigners, researchers and partners will enable Feed the Truth to challenge the outsized power and influence of the food industry.
