Elianne Farhat

Elianne Farhat has been a leader in many successful local, state and national campaigns throughout her ten years of community, labor, and electoral organizing. The first in father’s family to be born in the United States, she is passionate about building power in New American communities and joined the Illinois Coalition for Immigrant & Refugee Rights’ non-partisan voter registration and mobilization campaign in 2008. From that first professional organizing job onward, Elianne’s commitment to building power in low-income communities of color has been a constant thread through her diverse work experience – whether organizing New American voters in Chicago, electing Minnesota’s first DFL governor in more than 20 years, or advancing strategic campaigns to secure historic policy wins for working families.
