Mah­noor joins SAALT as our first Pol­i­cy Asso­ciate. Pri­or to this role, Mah­noor worked as a Pro­grams Asso­ciate at API­AVote, where she orga­nized AAPI youth in civic engage­ment efforts on cam­pus­es across the coun­try. She also interned at the Nation­al Immi­grant Wom­en’s Advo­ca­cy Project and the Glob­al Knowl­edge Ini­tia­tive, and explored the influ­ence of the South Asian dias­po­ra on the 2016 elec­tions in her under­grad­u­ate the­sis.
