Quinn is from a family of teachers who are very active in their union in South Jersey and was inspired to go into politics after watching Gov Chris Christie’s attacks on public education. They graduated from American University and became an organizer for Danica Roem’s historic 2017 campaign for House of Delegates. After that election they caught the organizing bug, and stayed in Virginia as a Regional Director for NextGen, helping register more than 25k students to vote in 2018. In 2019 they moved to Philadelphia to be NextGen’s Organizing Director, before hopping onto Elizabeth Warren’s presidential campaign as Out of State Director. They redeployed to Utah as GOTV Director before Senator Warren suspended her campaign. They moved to Alaska to finish out the cycle as Field Director for Alyse Galvin’s run for Congress, running a statewide relational program and distributed phones program to adapt to COVID restrictions. Following 2020 they took a little time off before coming on board as the National Organizing Director for the DLCC. The DLCC organizing program was incredibly successful with more than 18 million doors knocked, helping lead to the best midterm outcomes for the President’s party since at least 1934. Quinn then joined the NY WFP as Field Coordinator during the 2023 primary, which they just concluded. They are looking forward to their next opportunity to elect progressives and expand the electorate, and are excited to gather with the Netroots Community this year.
