Millennial Action Project announces Rep. Jose Felix to the board.

Nonpartisan organization expands to serve the growing population of Gen Z and millennials in elected office

WASHINGTON, D.C. – Millennial Action Project (MAP) announces team expansion with new members joining the organization and key promotions. MAP is proud to announce Former State Representative Jose Felix Diaz’s addition to the organization’s board of directors. In 2010, Rep. Diaz was elected to the Florida House of Representatives, where he served for seven years. During his legislative tenure, he was elected as chair of the Miami-Dade Legislative Delegation, where he led his colleagues during a period of sustained and successful bipartisanship. MAP is excited to bring his unique perspective as a former lawmaker to the board.

MAP recently welcomed Amaia Stecker as the Senior Director of Development; Bowden “Bo” Saunders as the Director of HR and Finance; Maloreigh Todd as the Digital Manager; and Lizzie Brown as the Special Assistant to the CEO. 

MAP promoted teammates Courtney Wright to Vice President of Learning and Organizational Development; Alexa Whaley to Press Secretary; and Sam Sherwood to State Caucus Manager.

“As MAP approaches its tenth anniversary, we see an incredible energy and demand for more cross-partisan spaces to convene, train, and equip young leaders to transcend political polarization,” said Layla Zaidane, MAP President and CEO. “We are excited to welcome new additions to the MAP board and team to meet this demand. They bring the diversity, talent, and passion that reflects the young leaders of the next generation.”

Millennial Action Project has an audacious mission to activate young leaders to bridge the partisan divide and transform American politics. With 1 out of 6 Congressional candidates nationwide being Millennials and a 170% increase in Gen Zers serving in state legislatures– the demand for this work only increases. A growing team is essential to MAP’s work in catalyzing the national momentum around young people in office and young people’s commitment to democracy.
