Lala Wu is the co-founder and Director of Engagement & Partnerships at the Sister District Project, a national grassroots organization founded in the wake of the 2016 election with the goal of strengthening democratic majorities in the states to build progressive power nationwide. In total, Sister District has endorsed 57 races in 11 strategic states, raising over $1.8 million in grassroots donations directly for candidates, as well as reaching out to over 2 million voters via phone calls, doors, texts, and postcards. In 2020, Sister District is focused on races that represent the last chance to elect a Democrat who will help to redraw district lines in 2021. At Sister District, Lala has successfully led the expansion of the organization’s national volunteer infrastructure, as well as the development of strategic partnerships with national and local organizations. Prior to Sister District, she clerked for federal judges in the Northern District of California and the District of Massachusetts, and served as an associate in the environment and energy group at the law firm Morrison & Foerster. Lala is a graduate of Barnard College of Columbia University and U.C. Berkeley School of Law.
