Lillian D. Singh Joins Share Our Strength as Senior VP of Family Economic Opportunity
Share Our Strength, a national anti-hunger organization has appointed Lillian D. Singh as its new Senior Vice President of Family Economic Opportunity. As part of Share Our Strength’s executive team, Singh will lead the organization’s initiative to engage structural inequities that create, sustain, and perpetuate food insecurity and persistent poverty for families.
In this role, Singh will spearhead a new strategic framework designed to address the root causes of intergenerational cycles of poverty. This is a critical part of Share Our Strength’s overarching mission – to end hunger and poverty in the U.S. and abroad. Leveraging the organization’s national platform and growing its network of stakeholders and national partners, Singh will amplify effective solutions, applying a racial economic equity lens to emergent and scalable solutions like the Child Tax Credit (CTC) to ensure all eligible families are aware of and enrolled in this program.
“To end the epidemic of hunger and poverty, we have to acknowledge the role of both structural and institutional racism in developing pathways forward. When a child is hungry, it is likely that child’s parents are at a high risk of food insecurity as well. The best way to feed hungry kids is to ensure their families have access to all the resources available to them, including school meals, programs like SNAP, and the Child Tax Credit, which has the power to cut childhood poverty in half,” said Singh, Senior Vice President of Family Economic Opportunity at Share Our Strength. “I’m honored to join Share Our Strength and build on the work its already begun to address economic opportunity for families, while introducing new ideas and strategies to deepen our impact.”
Singh joins Share Our Strength from her most recent role at Prosperity Now, serving as Vice President for Programs and Racial Wealth Equity. Additionally, Singh spent six years at the NAACP, serving at the end of her tenure as the National Director of Economic Strategic Partnerships and Development. She has both her undergraduate degree and MA from Stanford and has been the recipient of numerous fellowships and honors including the Aspen Institute Civil Society Fellow and the Independent Sector American Express NGen Fellow.
