National Campaign Strategist, ACLU Immigrants Rights
Natalie currently serves as the National Campaign Strategist for Immigrants Rights at the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU). She plays a key role in building multi-issue campaigns in partnership with ACLU’s policy advocates, litigators, organizers, and activists from 53 state offices. Recently, her work has focused on President Trump’s executive orders on immigration, including his move to block refugees, the Muslim Ban, his decision to rescind the DACA program, and most recently family separation. Previously, Natalie served as the National Organizing Director for Voto Latino, where she was responsible for developing and implementing the organization's field plan and voter engagement strategy. A Texas native, Natalie’s strong sense of devotion for the Latinx community is rooted in her upbringing - having been raised in the border city of Brownsville as a first generation American. This passion was further cultivated through her time on the Hillary for America campaign, where she served the Political Director in Colorado, and was part of the winning field team during the Nevada caucuses.On the campaign, she created and implemented national programs that increased Latina civic participation, most notably “Mujeres in Politics”. Prior to the campaign, Natalie served as a Presidential Appointee under the Obama Administration at the office of the U.S. Trade Representative. Natalie is also the founder of “The Future is Latina”, a lifestyle and clothing line created to empower and embolden.
