Stacy Burdett

Stacy Burdett works with policymakers, philanthropies, and other nonprofits on strategies to prevent and respond to antisemitism. She integrates those strategies to enhance corporate and university DEI programming to ensure a welcoming institutional culture for Jews and all communities. She has testified in Congress about antisemitism multiple times, including on the spike in antisemitism since the October 7, 2023 Hamas terror attacks.

As Vice President for Government Relations, Advocacy and Community Engagement at the Anti-Defamation League, Burdett directed national issue campaigns and coalition work and crafted policy recommendations and messaging on Jewish as well as civil and human rights issues. As Director of Government Relations at the US Holocaust Memorial Museum in DC, she engaged Congress, administration officials and thought leaders in exploring America’s response to Nazism and the Holocaust and its relevance to addressing societal and policy challenges today.

Stacy got her start in professional advocacy in the Soviet Jewry movement as a public affairs officer at the Union of Councils for Soviet Jews. She holds a B.A. in Middle East Studies from Barnard College, has studied at the Hebrew University in Jerusalem, and has lived and worked in Israel. Stacy has served on advisory boards for the William S. Cohen Institute for Leadership & Public Service at the University of Maine and the Southern Poverty Law Center Intelligence Project. She is on the board of directors of the Jewish Council for Public Affairs (JCPA), the Lillian & Albert Small Capital Jewish Museum in Washington, DC, and Tivnu: Building Justice, the nation’s only Jewish gap year program.
