Greta Carnes

Greta has been a progressive organizer for over 10 years, tackling her first turf at 15 years old for then-Senator Barack Obama in her home state of Colorado. Since then, she has worked on six campaigns as both a field and online organizer.

Most recently, Greta worked as the Texting Director on the 2017 Virginia Coordinated Campaign, where she ran a first-of-its-kind peer to peer texting program. Her team oversaw the sending of 3.2 million texts to Virginians in the final six weeks of the campaign — including a 7-day innovative “TOTV” (Text out the Vote) program.

Previously, Greta spent two years working for Hillary Clinton’s 2016 presidential campaign. She spent the primary building out the campaign’s pilot digital organizing program in Iowa that would scale to 14 other states before joining the digital team in Brooklyn for the general election and running the campaign’s first 1:1 SMS organizing hub in Silicon Valley. She spent the 2014 midterms cycle in Kentucky raising $5 million online for Alison Lundergan Grimes in an effort to unseat Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell — and in 2012, worked at a field organizer in Dubuque, Iowa, for President Obama’s reelection.

Greta lives in Washington DC — and if you want to see her eyes light up, just say the words “digital” and “organizing” in the same sentence.
