Lana began her journey into organizing as a college student, advocating for undocumented students on her college campus. When her absentee ballot was rejected in 2018 due to Georgia’s signature match law, Lana dove headfirst into the world of voter rights. She was a plaintiff in multiple lawsuits against the signature match law and shared her story nationally to convey the law’s negative impact.

Since then, Lana has worked in the voter rights space as an organizer at the American Civil Liberties Union of Georgia and as a political analyst at the New Georgia Project. Her previous experience has centered around poll worker recruitment, monitoring and working with local boards of elections, voter education, and legislative affairs.

Lana has a BS in political science from the University of North Georgia.
