Eva Harder is a writer at America’s Promise Alliance. With formal training in both journalism and speechwriting, Eva writes speeches, op-eds and blogs posts for America’s Promise leadership, along with producing original content for the organization.
Before she joined the team at America’s Promise, Eva was a junior associate at West Wing Writers, a speechwriting and strategy firm founded by President Clinton’s former speechwriters. She helped the team write speeches, op-eds, blogs, tweets and a TED Talk for some of the biggest names in philanthropy, entertainment, business, government, and nonprofit sectors about a range of issues as diverse as her clients—from the changing economy and healthcare industry to the need for more HIV/AIDS funding and the history of workers’ rights.
At the Center for Media and Social Impact, Eva wrote about the intersection of film and social justice, interviewed filmmakers and activists for a web series, and edited videos for the Center’s website. As an intern and freelancer for D.C.’s leading NPR station, WAMU 88.5, Eva has helped produce a weekly radio segment from start to finish—including researching, interviewing, editing audio for the air, and writing stories for the web—and published her own stories for print and broadcast.
Eva graduated summa cum laude from West Texas A&M University, with a B.A. in Communication and a minor in English. She studied creative writing in Florence, Italy, for a semester and slightly less creative policy making in Washington, D.C., as a congressional intern.
She also holds a Master of Arts from American University, where she received a joint degree in International Media and focused on the role of global health in social and economic development, from the School of Communication and the School of International Service.
