Meghan Cullen


Clerk Engagement Program Manager





Meghan joined the ACLU of Michigan in October 2022 as the Clerk Engagement Program Manager. In this role, Meghan leads a team to engage local election officials and community partners to expand access to the ballot and advance voting rights in Michigan.

Meghan’s background in grassroots campaigning, collective strategizing, and base building began in Bowling Green, Ohio, where she helped build out the structure for community-led racial, environmental, and economic justice initiatives. From 2016-2017, she helped orchestrate a campaign to install a city charter amendment guarding against the construction of the NEXUS pipeline, which transports fracked natural gas from Northeast Ohio to Canada and threatens the community’s drinking water. In 2020, she co-led a grassroots initiative advocating for the reallocation of public funds into resources that support the thriving of BIPOC and LGBTQ+ community members.

Prior to joining the ACLU, Meghan served as the Staff Manager for Ohio Citizen Action, a nonprofit in Cleveland, Ohio focused on clean energy advocacy and government accountability. 

Outside of her paid work, Meghan enjoys cooking delicious vegan food for her friends and family, going on long hikes and bike rides, and playing the flute. Meghan currently resides in Grand Rapids, Michigan with her partner and their feisty Australian Cattle Dog, Peregrine (Perry).
