Tech for Campaigns
Communications Marketing Designer

I've signed so many NDA's I'm not sure what I can say about this. I work with progressive campaigns to craft effective messaging and comms and TFC is a terrific resource for connecting candidates to passionate supporters performing vital technical roles in short sprints. I'm doing my best to touch as many campaigns as I can this midterm season. We're surfing the blue wave – Under 75 days to go until the midterms and we could use your help.
