State Voices

Angela Tombazzi

Director of Data & Technology

Angela M. Tombazzi is the first woman to serve as Director of Data & Technology. With a staff of seven and growing, Angela oversees the largest and most diverse department at State Voices. Her team is responsible for the hiring, onboarding, training, and development of more than 30 state data staff who work at State Voices’ 23 state tables and serve the data needs of 600 table partners.  

Angela has led the department in integrating new tools, data, and reporting capabilities, and built a robust civic data program that emphasizes 21st century organizing needs.  The department oversaw  efforts that resulted in record voter outreach—more than 25 million text messages, phone calls, and emails in 2018—through digital organizing and online voter registration campaigns. In 2019, her efforts to find enhanced data for the unregistered community resulted in State Voices gaining access to the largest dataset ever available for nonprofit census outreach. In 2020, her department expects to set a new record and manage data for more than 30 million voter contacts and 2 million voter registrations. 

Angela has over a decade of experience managing civic data and civic engagement programs. After interning and working for various Democratic political campaigns, she began her nonprofit career as the Ohio Voice and America Votes-Ohio Data Associate in 2008. She then served as the Data Manager for both organizations from 2009-2012, the Ohio Voice Data Director from 2012-2016, and Deputy Director of Data & Technology at State Voices from 2017-2019.

Angela holds a BA in Political Science and Sociology from Ohio University. A life-long Ohioan, Angela grew up in Cleveland and currently calls the city of Kent home. She enjoys spending her free time relaxing with her husband and their 2 dogs and 2 cats.

 

Letter from Alexis Anderson-Reed: All Black Lives Matter

The righteous rage demonstrated across the country is justified.

These uprisings are more than protest; they are a rebellion against white supremacy, racialized capitalism, a democracy that is not working, and the continued oppression, torture and murder of Black lives.

Impactful Leaders Foster Leadership in Others

At State Voices, we believe in the power of the collective and the power of transformational leadership. The best leaders are committed to amplifying more voices, supporting leadership in others, and building power with BIPOC communities.

Executive Directors of State Tables across the network exemplify these ideals. Several Executive Directors have joined State Voices over the last ten months, and they have so much to share about their collective vision for a more equitable world and a healthy democracy.

Electoral Justice and COVID-19 in Battleground States

The COVID-19 pandemic is illuminating injustices that have long existed in our society. This crisis underscores the need for a healthy democracy in which oppressed communities have a voice and get their needs met.

Learn about how a few State Tables across the country—like in Wisconsin, Nevada, Ohio, Georgia, Montana, and Louisiana—are pushing for electoral justice, mutual aid, and BIPOC political power during this time.
