Gwendolyn Hodge serves as the Events manager at Pacific Legal Foundation, where she collaborates across departments to develop and execute events that promote PLF’s values and highlight the work PLF does in litigation and legislation.
She enjoys working on events because they provide a platform that allows voices to be heard and amplified, voices that otherwise might not get the attention they deserve. She is particularly excited that PLF elevates the stories of our clients and supporters to create tangible change.
Prior to joining PLF, Gwen was Events manager at the American Legislative Exchange Council (ALEC). She worked on planning and producing ALEC’s large-scale, national conferences and smaller, regional educational events. Before her role at ALEC, Gwen worked on the events team at Stand Together, where she contributed to the development of partner engagement strategies and the execution of partner summits. She also had the chance to intern at a variety of public and private sector organizations, including ALEC, DCI Group, and the Supreme Court of the United States. Her internship at SCOTUS instilled in her a deep appreciation for the processes of the highest court in the land, as well as the ability to recite the Chief Justices of the United States in order.
Gwen’s love for liberty can be traced back to her education at Hillsdale College, where she graduated in 2017 with a double major in politics and theater. She resides in Washington, D.C., and vows never to move across the river to Northern Virginia, no matter how much money she could save on taxes.
