Sarah Audelo is the Executive Director of the Alliance for Youth Action, the nation’s largest youth grassroots organizing network in the country, working with 24 organizations from 20 states. An organization that is “of young people, by young people, for all people,” the Alliance works to build, support, and scale young people’s political power and youth-led organizations across the United States. The Alliance network has been on the cutting edge of some of the most innovative and effective policy and programmatic work across the country including passing the nation’s first Automatic Voter Registration bill, developing and managing National Voter Registration Day, registering voters in county jails, fighting to increase the minimum wage, and more.
Sarah’s passion is centering and uplifting young folks, and particularly young folks of color, in progressive movements and institutions. Before joining the Alliance, Sarah served as Hillary Clinton’s Millennial Vote Director in the 2016 election. She is an experienced organizer and advocate for the Millennial generation, working on economic justice, reproductive rights, LGBTQ rights, civic engagement, and more at organizations including Advocates for Youth and Generation Progress.
