Rev. Heather Taylor, J.D. is Managing Director of Bread for the World, a Christian advocacy organization urging U.S. decision makers to do all they can to pursue a world without hunger. Bread’s mission is to educate and equip people to advocate for policies and programs that can help end hunger in the U.S. and around the world.

Taylor oversees Bread’s public policy and program divisions in developing advocacy, grassroots mobilization, and communications strategies to inspire faith communities, policymakers, and partners to engage in Bread’s mission to end hunger. She has represented Bread making guest TV appearances on CNN, C-SPAN, CBN, Scripps News, and Cox News outlets and is a passionate advocate for lifting voices of people who experience racial, gender, and economic injustice.

She previously led organizations to increase access to legal and social services, as well as protect the rights and dignity of historically marginalized populations; secure the economic rights of women in Sub-Saharan Africa as a fellow at International Justice Mission, a Christian nonprofit seeking to protect people in poverty from violence by transforming justice systems; and twice served on U.S. delegations headed by the UN Commission on the Status of Women to promote women’s political participation in emerging democratic societies.

Taylor holds a J.D. from the University of Iowa, a Master of Divinity from Wesley Theological Seminary, and a B.S. from the Georgetown University School of Foreign Service.
