WASHINGTON, D.C. –  The Millennial Action Project (MAP) announces Rochelle Colburn as the new Chief Operating Officer. Colburn has a background in conservative politics, communications, financial management, and nonprofits. She will lead MAP in navigating new institutional changes, implementing new systems and technologies, and fostering MAP’s dynamic team. 

“I am excited to join MAP at a time in American history when opportunities for political collaboration and bipartisanship are so lacking but so needed. MAP’s work is crucial to helping lawmakers overcome hyperpartisanship to solve important policy issues affecting younger generations, and I look forward to bringing my leadership and operations experience to such a worthwhile organization,” said Colburn.

Having previously served as Chief Operating Officer for College to Congress, Colburn’s appointment as COO at MAP is a pronounced next step to a career dedicated to producing excellent organization-wide systems, while using her talents to further public policy. 

“I am thrilled to welcome Rochelle as MAP’s COO, and look forward to working alongside her at this critical time for our democracy. Her political, communications, and nonprofit expertise makes her the perfect fit for this role at a time when the organization is poised for tremendous scale. As more and more young people enter public office, Rochelle will make sure MAP is prepared inside and out to support their success and execute on our mission,” said Layla Zaidane, MAP President and CEO.


The Millennial Action Project (MAP) is the largest nonpartisan organization of millennial elected officials in the U.S., dedicated to activating young leaders to bridge the partisan divide and transform American politics. As a 501(c)(3) organization, MAP has established bipartisan Future Caucuses in 31 state legislatures, launched the first-ever bipartisan caucus for young members of Congress, and engages over 1,600 young legislators across the country to work on future-oriented policy solutions.
