Meet Our Trainers
Melissa Markowich has over 6 years of experience in Organizing, Digital Organizing, and GOTV on both electoral and issue advocacy campaigns. She started as a volunteer in her hometown of Charleston, SC, and has since worked in multiple states across the country for Presidential, Gubernatorial, Congressional, and local elections. She recently served as the Deputy Digital Organizing Director for NJ Forward 2021 where she oversaw the out-of-state volunteer program, partnering with other state parties and organizations to support the distributed organizing program. The first in her family to graduate college, she is passionate about making campaigns and organizing work more accessible and breaking down barriers for those looking to enter the political arena, especially for BIPOC communities and women. When she isn’t running between Zoom meetings, you can find her with an iced coffee and listening to a podcast.
