Introducing We Count! Director Carolyn Monden

Georgia WAND is pleased to introduce Carolyn Monden and welcome her to our staff as We Count! Outreach Director. Carolyn will lead Georgia WAND's efforts to build a grassroots voter empowerment movement to expand the electorate in Georgia by engaging with diverse communities and building alliances across race, class, and gender lines.

To welcome her to the Georgia WAND community yourself, email her at carolyn@wand.org.

Carolyn is dedicated to public service. She served as the constituency liaison in the 4th Congressional District office and in the same capacity for Mayor's Office in the City of Atlanta, for almost a decade. She also worked as Chief of Staff to State Representatives Stacey Evans and Margaret Kaiser in the 2011 Georgia General Assembly. Carolyn is no stranger to electoral politics. She served as volunteer coordinator for Amir Farokhi’s 2009 Atlanta City Council bid and as minority outreach director during State Representative Elena Parent's 2010 campaign.

Carolyn is a graduate of the White House Project 'Go Run' Training and Georgia Association of Latino Elected Officials (GALEO) Institute for Leadership. She also serves as Chair of the Latino Caucus of the Democratic Party of Georgia.

In her work at Georgia WAND, Carolyn is responsible for outreach across the state to engage voters and help build a more progressive Georgia. Some of her efforts include voter drives and neighborhood canvassing, voter volunteer events, educational forums with local respected speakers, and candidate forums in key districts with local media coverage as well as facilitating phone banking to educate voters on early voting locations and dates, to direct voters to information about the candidates, and to offer rides to the polls.

Carolyn earned a degree in communication with a minor in political science from Oglethorpe University.
