Shireen Mathews
Digital Organizer, Design
EMILY's List
I’m a designer and digital organizer at EMILY’s List. I get to bring together my interests in art, digital, organizing, and progressive politics during this truly wild and historic moment. Growing up as an immigrant kid in the suburbs, I didn't have a lot of political efficacy. But now I work in politics in Washington DC. I'm inspired by the organizers, freedom fighters, and artists of past and present who envision a more just world. In my free time, I like sharing good food with friends and family, organizing around immigrant justice and mutual aid, and admiring the flowering trees in my neighborhood.
