Stephanie Schweitzer Garza is excited to join the leadership team at the ACLU of Colorado.

Most recently she served as Director of Strategic Partnerships at the Texas Civil Rights Project where she co-led the Community Engagement Department and oversaw a resource development team that grew the organization's revenues three-fold within a five-year period.

Prior to her tenure at the Texas Civil Rights Project, she served as Finance and Operations Manager at Battleground Texas, Deputy Regional Finance Director for Wendy Davis for Governor, and Field Organizer for Cory Booker for U.S. Senate.

A former actress and dancer, when not working to advance a vision for our communities where all individuals can thrive, Stephanie's greatest passions are dance and travel. In 2014, she wandered into a honky-tonk in Austin, Texas and met her now husband. Since then, they have wandered the globe in search of the next great music venue in which to cut a rug -- whether it be the Texas two-step, Cajun waltz, conjunto Tejano, Colombian cumbia, Cuban salsa, or Peruvian criolla, Stephanie would be excited to get out on the floor and dance with you!
