Christopher Hale, Executive Director
Christopher Hale is the executive director of Catholics in Alliance for the Common Good and the co-founder of Millennial. At 28, he is the youngest executive director of a national Catholic nonprofit in the United States.
Christopher has dedicated his career to the gritty intersection of faith and politics and the reconciliation among people of all political and religious stripes in the pursuit of the common good. In the same month, he has been derided as a "radical right winger" and a "lapdog for liberals" by two different national commentators, a strong sign that he's willing to go beyond stale partisan labels to promote the social mission of the Catholic Church from womb to tomb in public life.
A columnist for TIME on faith and politics and a Fox News contributor, he and his work have appeared on CNN, MSNBC and FOX News, and in The New York Times, The Washington Post and USA Today among other publications. In his media work, he has spoken and interviewed the top Catholic politicians in the United States, including Joseph Biden, John Boehner, Paul Ryan, and Nancy Pelosi.
A strong advocate for the politics of inclusion in public life, Christopher has advised and lobbied some of the top elected officials in the United States, including the President, Vice President, and Speaker of the House. He has also led and participated in the creation of several amicus curiae briefs filed in the Supreme Court.
A White House alumnus, he helped lead national Catholic outreach for President Barack Obama’s 2012 re-election campaign.
His first book Rebuild God's House: Pope Francis's Challenge to American Catholics is due out later this year.
