Jon Hoadley
Director, the Unity Michigan Coalition

Jon Hoadley is an independent consultant focusing on coalition and campaign management. Prior to working independently, Hoadley worked on a major donor advising team.

Hoadley was also the campaign manager of One Kalamazoo, the successful local campaign to defend the sexual orientation and gender identity inclusive Kalamazoo Non-Discrimination Ordinance put before voters in November of 2009. The One Kalamazoo campaign built a professional team with local leaders, worked extensively with people of faith, activated new and infrequent student voters, and prioritized organizing in communities of color.
