Brianna Carmen is the Director of Organizing and Partnerships for Voto Latino. She was born and raised in El Paso, Texas, where she first became acquainted with community issues and their connection to voter apathy. This interest led her to become one of the youngest Hispanic women in the nation to manage a U.S. Congressional race in her home district, at the age of 21. Brianna later worked on a historic Senate race in Texas, engaging tens of thousands of Texans in conversations about local issues and the democratic process. She has maintained her passion of connecting voters with opportunities to exercise their voice at Voto Latino. Her current work at VL focuses on building up the organization’s volunteer network all over the country, encouraging individuals to advocate for their communities at the local, state and national level. She is also active in their Somos Mas campaign, working to register 1 million persons to vote in 2020
