🎉 Meet our newest Common Cause team member: Ari Franco! Ari is joining the Common Cause team as the new Youth Engagement Organizer, with a background in voter registration, youth mobilization and GOTV programming. Ari will be leading our youth base-building and membership engagement work.
Based in Washington, D.C., Ari grew up and attended college in North Carolina, with his previous work pertaining to statewide campaigns and non-profit programming. He’s most interested in the engagement of young folks who may not have an outlet for civic participation, and providing those folks with the resources necessary to make a difference around them.
When he’s not working, Ari enjoys reading, cooking, international travel, and studying martial arts.
