Trevor Tejeda-Gervais, Secretary

Trevor

Trevor has almost a decade of experience organizing movements, driving electoral campaigns, developing and executing communication strategies, and directly lobbying legislators. He has two bachelor’s degrees from the University of Arizona, in Political Science and Latin American Studies.

Trevor began his political career in Arizona, where he successfully organized his public school district to set their first-ever class size maximum. During the 2012 presidential campaign, he served as the Southern Arizona Regional Field Director for Barack Obama’s reelection campaign. In that capacity, he created and managed more than 25 neighborhood volunteer teams, which registered more than 12,000 people to vote across Arizona border communities and Tucson. As Election Day neared, Trevor became the GOTV Director for Central Las Vegas, where he managed field staff and created a regional Election Day tracking team to deploy additional resource to priority precincts, which in turn enjoyed record turnout.

As the Midwest Organizing Director of Common Cause, Trevor developed relationships across the region in order to advocate for redistricting, voting rights reforms, and other campaigns to increase political participation. He developed a statewide Student Network in Illinois with a presence on more than a dozen campuses, in addition to several community chapters across the state, that lobby legislators and educate voters.

Trevor is also a weekly panelist on Reverend Jesse Jackson Sr.’s nationally-syndicated radio show “Keep Hope Alive”, which airs in 40 markets across the country.

In his current capacity as Co-Founder of We Bridge Consulting, LLC he primarily focuses on general consulting services, community organizing and field mobilization, digital communications, and overall political strategy for state and local campaigns.
