Iridane Sanchez

Deputy Director West of Data and Technology

Iridane Sanchez is the State Voices West Deputy Director of Data and Technology. She trains and coaches partner organizations on tools (including the State Voices VAN) and best practices for using data.

Iridane was drawn to this work by her struggle as an undocumented immigrant. Now a legal permanent resident, she fights for a complete and permanent solution for her mother and other undocumented families who are still at risk of being torn apart. Prior to joining State Voices, she served as the Data and Program Manager for Silver State Voices. Most recently, she worked on a winning assembly primary campaign in Nevada.

Iridane is currently a student at the University of Nevada Las Vegas, majoring in Political Science. She enjoys spending time with her family, traveling, and exploring the Nevada outdoors.
