Jennifer Knox
National Director of Organizing & Tech Innovation
Working Families Party

Jennifer has been organizing professionally for 20 years with experience at the local, state and national levels. Ms. Knox’s first dream was to pursue technology and become a coder, but she fell in love with organizing in her hometown of Madison, WI as a working class college student pushing for college affordability and access for low-income students and students of color. After spending a decade learning and honing the craft of person-to-person organizing Jknox’s, position at Working Families allows her to leverage her deep field and organizing expertise with an opportunity to pioneer tech strategies that meet real needs on the ground to power the movement. Jennifer supervised Working Families Party's work which helped flip the state's supreme court from republican control in 2023 opening up opportunities to end Wisconsin's abortion ban, un-gerrymander the state, and overturn anti-democratic and anti-worker rulings. At WFP jknox is leading on developing WFP's organizing model, tactical innovation, sharpening WFP's tech stack, and launching Votivate, a tool that gets voter file access to all campaigns - no matter how big or small - to run effective grassroots campaigns. After 15 years living in Washington, DC, Jennifer recently relocated to Denver, CO. jknox enjoys all things outdoors including running, hiking, skiing, paddle boarding, and kayaking.
