Marit Vangrow is an associate in The Raben Group’s DC office who is deeply interested in matters related to church, state, and law. Marit uses her strong research, writing, and project management skills to help her clients advance a variety of causes, ranging from reproductive justice to immigration reform.
Before joining Raben, Marit worked with the Women’s Information Network, a professional, political, and social network for pro-choice, Democratic women in Washington, DC. During her senior year, she was a Finance Intern with Brindisi for Congress in New York’s 22nd congressional district. Previously, Marit interned at the Center for American Progress with their Faith and Progressive Policy Initiative, where she monitored her team’s social media accounts and researched issues related to religious liberty, criminal justice, and reproductive justice. She also interned with Democracy Works, a nonprofit in Brooklyn that aims to make voting more accessible, and supported the organization’s efforts to activate the youth vote.
During her junior year of college, Marit worked with five other students to produce a book detailing the history of Jewish life on campus. Her chapter investigated the university’s rigid admissions system that intentionally limited the number of Jewish students on campus. Marit earned her bachelor’s degree in Religion with a minor in Political Science from Colgate University, where she graduated Summa Cum Laude.
