Trooper Sanders


Trooper Sanders is the CEO of the Benefits Data Trust, a nonprofit that uses data, technology, policy change and direct service to help people tap the more than $60 billion in unclaimed benefits that support critical needs such as food security and health care. He has held White House policy staff positions during two administrations and served as the Clinton Foundation’s domestic policy advisor. More recently, he completed a fellowship at the Rockefeller Foundation where he led a project to identify opportunities to ensure that artificial intelligence improves social and economic equity. He earned his bachelor’s degree from the University of Michigan and holds master's degrees from the London School of Economics and the University of London.

We need to give the public servants who manage safety-net systems the technology tools and incentives to track critical outcomes and meet people where they are.
