Eva Facundo: Helping Campaigns Connect with Small Donors

55 minutes

As 2019 ends and the political campaign season of 2020 heats up, we sit down with Emerge America's Eva Facundo to talk about the wave of grassroots digital fundraising that is allowing a slew of new candidates to have a shot at elected office. We also talk about the difference between being Dominican in Miami and Southern California and what's it like to have a mother for a journalist. 

Dominican-born and Miami-raised, Facundo now calls Southern California home as she serves as Deputy Director of Affiliate Fundraising for Emerge, one of the nation's premier organizations that recruits, trains and provides a powerful network to Democratic women who want to run for office. Her past political fundraising work includes doing work for Emily's List, the DSCC, Rep. Loretta Sanchez and a host of others running for federal and state elected office.
