Bobby received his bachelor’s degree in Political Science from the Virginia Commonwealth University, College of Humanities and Sciences with a concentration in pre-law. You should obviously be very intimidated by this as this program was ranked 172 out of the 1270 political science programs in the United States by PoliticalScienceSchools.com.
Bobby received his first foray into the political arena with an internship with then newly elected Senator of Virginia, Jim Web in 2007. Bobby quickly felt he would be able to have a greater impact on the causes he cares most about by working in the nonprofit industry and advocating for changes in the government and world as an independent citizen. No slight to Jim Webb of course.
Launching into his career in March 2008 (after graduating college a semester early may I add) Bobby began working at HealthRight International, a global health and human rights organization. Bobby’s longtime idol, Hillary Clinton famously said “Human rights are women’s rights, and women’s rights are human rights,” Beginning to find his footing, Bobby quickly realized that he would be of most use to the organization by focusing his efforts in the fundraising field. He particularly loved this position while getting to help raise funds for the organization’s efforts to help serve mother’s and women gain access to health care such as the following fundraiser and design. https://www.facebook.com/plugins/post.php?href=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.facebook.com%2FHealthRight%2Fphotos%2Fa.463633786977.247552.352805701977%2F10150395301876978%2F%3Ftype%3D3&width=500
He continued building his skill-set in direct mail, individual, corporate and foundation fundraising as well as social media outreach and fundraising by transitioning to the Center for Urban Community Services (CUCS), a New York City nonprofit focused in helping the homeless, low-income families, supported housing services, mental illness, training, social service topics, and much more.
After receiving an amazing offer by his mentor and former Executive Director at HealthRight International Bobby joined the Center for Comprehensive Care at St. Luke’s and Roosevelt Hospital, a direct services clinic and pharmacy for those living with HIV/AIDS and other chronic illnesses in New York City.
Most recently Bobby served as Major Gifts Officer for the environmental organization Heal the Bay. Prior to Heal the Bay, Bobby served as the Corporate Relations Manager at The Painted Turtle securing corporate partnerships and sponsorships for the organization.
In his spare time Bobby is an avid social media contributor commenting on a range of topics from politics, the 2016 election, current events and pop culture.
Bobby is a fierce supporter of Hillary Clinton. As noted by the group Bros4Hillary,
Bobby has been boldly fighting for Hillary on social media before it became cool. His active advocacy for Hillary landed him on the notorious BernieBros hit list. In response, he helped to expose the hit list and became an early organizer for the hashtag EndCyBernBullying. This helped the hashtag to trend on Twitter. This had such an effect that it got it covered by Blue Nation Review.
Bobby has had the pleasure of working with Bros4Hillary in an effort to help elect Hillary Clinton as the next President of the United States serving on the Social Media Outreach Team as Social Media Lead. As noted by Bros4Hillary:
During the Manhattan Democratic Debate, Bobby Hall led Bros4Hillary’s Twitter outreach, Tweeting the debate memes created by our designers in real time. Those efforts, in concert with other members of our social media outreach team, got over 400,000 impressions for our memes. This further helped elevate our status and grow our group. Bobby also hosted a Happy Hour for Hillary at a wine bar. Despite facing vitriolic BernieBros online, Bobby has maintained a positive attitude, always choosing to focus on the message of love and kindness.
Bobby and his fiancé plan to get married in September 2017. They live with their two black pugs.
