Carisa grew up in Garland Texas and graduated from UT in 2013 with a B.A.in government. She got her start in community activism by working with the Texas Freedom Network (TFN) and registering students to vote. She currently serves on the TFN’s board of directors. In 2013, she began working with the Texas Democratic Party fundraising, directing events and working with statewide candidates. She worked with the Texas State Employees Union during the 2015 legislative session organizing union members and lobbying the legislature. She then was recruited by the Travis County Democratic Party to help build a strong party infrastructure to turn texas blue. She feels strongly that when we work together, we win.
