The presidential campaign of Massachusetts Senator Elizabeth Warren (D) has hired Kunoor Ojha, who was a top student organizer for both Bernie Sanders and Hillary Clinton in the last presidential election cycle.
Ojha, a Democratic activist, announced via her Twitter handle that she was hired as a Deputy National Organizing Director for the Warren campaign.
Until recently, Ojha was working as “Families Belong Together Distributed Actions Director” at National Domestic Workers Alliance in Washington, District of Columbia.
Prior to that, from April 2018 to September 2018, she worked for the liberal grassroots group Indivisible Project as an Associate Organizing Director.
Recently, she was among 65 South Asian women lawyers, activists and advocates that campaigned against Neomi Rao, who was appointed by President Trump for the United States Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit.
Ojha has extensive experience working for campaigns.
In 2016, she served as the National Campus and Students Organizing Director for Hillary for America, the principal campaign committee of the Clinton campaign. In that role, she was responsible for engaging youth voters.
Ojha, who is from Illinois, began her political career as a “summer organizer” for President Obama’s re-election campaign in 2011, while she was still in school.
Ojah is an alumnus of Illinois Institute of Technology, from where she graduated in political science.
