Emily Giffin

Campus Partnerships Manager, Voter Engagement

Emily supports college campuses across the country in their work to increase civic learning and democratic engagement among student voters, with a particular focus on leveraging technology. In addition to supporting partners’ strategic use of TurboVote, Emily travels to conferences in order to facilitate Votes & Ballots, an action planning activity developed by Democracy Works that takes the guesswork out of on-campus democratic engagement. She graduated from the University of Missouri with a Bachelor of Journalism degree and, before joining Democracy Works, was part of the EdTech team at Scholastic. Emily’s based in Chicago for now, but she has a knack for landing in new cities and setting out to discover all they have to offer in the realms of dance, bookstores, and burgers.
