Gaciru Matathia

Operations Associate, Voter Engagement

Gaciru is the operations associate, a part of the research team supporting and strengthening daily operations. She is an only child with a large extended family scattered across the United States and Kenya. Gaciru studied international affairs with a minor in social entrepreneurship at Northeastern University. Previously, she worked across fields of tech, law, and education but has always been driven by the desire to increase the public’s access to tools and resources. When not using her skills to research for Democracy Works, you can find this self-proclaimed introvert cherishing her alone time to peruse the depths of the internet—whether it’s finding a new favorite mix on SoundCloud or stumbling onto a great web series. Looking for some new dance moves? Gaciru loves attending local dance fitness classes and finding workshops for dance styles she has never tried before.
