As Digital Strategist, Laura (she/her) drives TakeAction’s email program and combines digital tools with narrative strategy to compel people to action. She’s grateful to have the opportunity to contribute her skills as a writer and communicator to TakeAction Minnesota’s people-centered movement for a more just and joyful democracy.
With a background in communications and advocacy at Minnesota Housing Partnership, an affordable housing nonprofit, housing justice is the issue closest to Laura’s heart. After studying environmental policy at Luther College in Decorah, Iowa, she got curious about how we can frame big issues — like housing and climate change — to inspire action rather than paralysis. Laura grew up in rural Wisconsin, inspired to write by her big sister, Anne.
