Paris Events Candidate Lisa Ramos

My name is Lisa Ramos and I am running for DAF Paris Events Coordinator. I have lived in Paris since 2009, speak French, and have been lucky to be a part of this very special and vibrant Democratic community. I have attended DAF events with US activists, helped to phone bank New Jersey for Sen. Cory Booker, and made calls for Mike Espy’s Mississippi Senate Race. At a recent Diversity Caucus event, I saw people of different ages and backgrounds coming together and benefiting from the ideas presented by the film “Latino: The Changing Face of America.” As Event Coordinator, I would be honored to support more events like these for the greater community.

Previously, I worked for U.S. Senator Barbara Boxer's re-election campaign in 1998 as a fundraiser, and executed special events for other Democratic candidates and politicians. I also coordinated large-scale multi-city events for the Mexican American Legal Defense and Educational Fund. I know the effort that goes into coordinating things, people, and negotiating schedules, venues and vendors. I would be excited to lend my support to the new leadership of Paris in the capacity of Events Coordinator. Thank you for your consideration.
