Amanda Brown

National Political Director
Rock the Vote

I graduated from Dartmouth with a double major in government & sociology in 2007. Two days later, I joined the Obama campaign, spending time in Nevada, Ohio, Pennsylvania, & Oregon for the primaries, and then California (traveling with POTUS' sister Maya for a month to raise $), before moving to Chicago for the general. After winning(!!), I moved to DC and immediately began working on the Inaugural Committee. I ultimately settled into the Administration as the Assistant to the Director in the White House Office of Political Affairs, and then as the Advisor for Strategic Planning in Secretary Chu's office. These experiences showed me how much I love campaigns, &, really, how much I just believe in the power of Millennials to create change in this country...and world. I am now at Rock the Vote and love the daily challenge of engaging young people in our country’s democracy.
