Liz Norton

By Wes Calkin

Liz Norton (she/her/hers) was a freelance television producer for over ten years, with a focus on public policy issues. Those programs included several Fred Friendly Seminars for PBS and youth violence programming for MTV News. Liz founded Stone Soup Films in 2008 in response to the gap in the communications capacity of the nonprofit sector. Since then, the organization has grown nearly 2,000%, has completed over 100 films and has a roster of nearly 700 industry volunteers. During the Clinton Administration, Ms. Norton was a research director in the White House Office of Communications. In that role, she served as a link between the president, the press and the public, primarily on the issues involving crime and drug policy. For twenty-five years, Ms. Norton has been a director of the Diane and Norman Bernstein Foundation. In addition to joining the Woolly board in 2016, she also serves on the board of The Environmental Film Festival and lives in Washington DC with her husband and two teenage children.
