Lila Zucker
Mentorship & Capstone Co-Chair, NLC Louisiana

Lila Zucker is a political and community organizer who most recently was the Remote Mobilization and Training Director for Victory for LA to re-elect Governor Edwards, where she worked with rural and remote activists across the state organizing in their communities to engage voters. Previously she worked for Stacey Abrams in Georgia as a regional field director, as a shop steward (and bartender) with UNITE HERE Local 23, and on progressive electoral campaigns across Louisiana. Lila also worked for three years at the Advocacy Center as an advocate and outreach coordinator for seniors and people with disabilities across Louisiana. Before moving to Louisiana eight years ago, Lila was an organizer with SEIU Local 503 and Jobs with Justice in Oregon, Washington and Wisconsin, working to weave together labor, community and political campaigns. She got her start as an organizer in high school working with Jobs with Justice in Oregon and works to incorporate the organizing skills she learned working with unions and community organizations into every electoral campaign she works on. Her dedication to active solidarity and the belief that an injury to one is an injury to all guides Lila's work as an organizer and trainer.

Lila is passionate about supporting and training activists across the South, especially in often-forgotten communities outside major metro areas, so that every community has the necessary tools and support to fight for justice and progressive values. She is enthusiastic about direct action, creative organizing, incorporating fun into every campaign and ensuring that our movements reflect the values we are fighting for.
