Please give a warm welcome to Vanessa Snow, MassVOTE's new Policy and Organizing Director!
Ms. Snow is a long-time activist from Boston. She brings decades of experience in labor, community, and youth organizing and advocacy. A UMass Amherst alum, Ms. Snow has previously served at organizations including SEIU Local 509, the Greater Boston Labor Council, and the Hyde Square Task Force. Additionally, Ms. Snow is the board chair of Zero Debt MA, a board member of Student Immigrant Movement, a member of the Mijente National Leadership Circle, and a member of Right to the City Vote’s steering committee.
“Civic engagement and voter mobilization are important tools in achieving real change to people's lives," said Ms. Snow. "I am looking forward to organizing and advocating for policies that protect and expand voting rights across the state of Massachusetts.”
Ms. Snow has already started digging into policies critical to MassVOTE's mission, such as the VOTES Act, the FARE Act, and jail-based voting reform. You can reach her at email@example.com. We are thrilled to have her on board, and know she will accomplish much with MassVOTE!
