- The Pew Charitable Trusts
Grange oversees Pew’s portfolio of original research and groundbreaking analysis on a range of issues affecting states’ fiscal health and economic growth, from state budgets, tax systems, and public sector retirement benefits to transportation and clean energy. She leads the development of major research efforts, including those on states’ health care costs and cities. She also oversees Stateline, the center’s daily news service.
Grange also developed three national advocacy campaigns: a project to increase access to dental care for low-income children; a sentencing and corrections initiative that helps states protect public safety while controlling prison spending; and a project to ensure that states with the death penalty prevent wrongful convictions of innocent individuals and apprehend those truly guilty. Before joining Pew in 2000, Grange was a senior program director at Equal Justice Works, a national nonprofit organization based in Washington, DC. She also was a reporter for the Los Angeles Times.
Grange holds a bachelor’s degree in philosophy and journalism from the University of Southern California and a law degree from the University of California, Berkeley.
