State Voices is pleased to welcome Cara Romanik as our new Civic Engagement Manager. She will support our 2018 voter registration program across multiple states.

Cara got her start in civic engagement work in 2007, helping adults prepare for their citizenship exams at a refugee services agency. Her professional experience also includes electoral organizing in Ohio, program coordination for a college access program, and fundraising for grassroots organizations. Most recently, she served as a union organizer for the largest school district in her home state of Louisiana.

Cara lives in New Orleans, where she spends her free time bike-camping, cooking with no recipe, and writing for the theater.
