Ohio Director, Campus Election Engagement Project

When inequality’s negative effects bring local communities to their knees, the question remains: What can local citizens do?
This question has driven Lesha’s career and avocations throughout her life. From directing VISTA volunteers to implementing the Connect to Complete Program, her professional work with Ohio Campus Compact has been about getting campuses to recognize and address the unmet needs and human rights of their students and local communities.

In parallel, all of her local electoral politics and community work have been similarly focused, from working at the grassroots level on teams to develop community gardens, emergency shelters, a thrift store and food pantry, to addressing the emergency needs of people facing evictions, utility shut offs, empty refrigerators, and unfilled prescriptions. Ultimately all citizens must work for systemic change so all people can have dignity and live in a just society.

Lesha is excited to now be working part-time with the Campus Election Engagement Program, and hopes to bring her professional background and personal experiences to bear on the work campuses are doing to build cultures of engagement.
