The Leadership Team
RED ARCH is made up of a talented group of leaders who have partnered together to bring intellectual strength and a spirit of outreach to the organization. The organization is led by a volunteer Board of Directors and consultants with vast experience in law, policy, politics, museums, art, history, executive administration, law enforcement, academia, and journalism.

Because cultural heritage is an expansive field, RED ARCH is singularly committed to collaboration. We seek partnerships with universities and other nonprofits to tap in to their institutional strengths in the social sciences, historic preservation, archaeology, art history, criminal justice, the physical and biological sciences, and statistics.
