Molly Munger, Founding Co-Director Advancement Project


Following a twenty-year career as a federal prosecutor and business litigator, Molly Munger has devoted a second twenty years to civil rights work. She has recently retired from daily work at civil rights group Advancement Project and now kibitzes there as a Founding Co-Director. 

Both Molly and her husband, Steve English, began their legal careers at Agnew, Miller & Carlson, where they gained a life-long appreciation for their mentor, Bill Bogaard. 

Molly is a committed Pasadenan who appreciates all aspects of the Arroyo. Since she was nine, except for the years she was away in school, she has never lived more than a few blocks from an Arroyo edge. 

Molly has served on many boards, including 11 years with the James Irvine Foundation. She is a former and recently-returned Commissioner on the First 5 California Commission. She currently helps support Pasadena City College’s public radio station, KPCC, as a member of the board of Southern California Public Radio. 

Molly and her husband Steve have two married sons and three grandchildren, with the latest granddaughter following the family tradition by starting her life on Laguna Road about five blocks from the Arroyo.
