Jaylen Black

Communications Director

Jaylen’s passions include the intersection of socioeconomic status on educational, wealth, and housing opportunities, criminal justice reform, gun violence, and healthcare. Jaylen got her start interning for Stacey Abrams in 2017 in communications then moved to co founding the first college outreach for her campaign in Georgia in Dawgs for Abrams in Athens where she worked with local field organizers and leaders to build grassroots support for Abrams. Jaylen has had experiences on the Hill with Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee where she’s done a mix of work in voter protection, communications, and finance as well as in policy and research work through the Walter Center. More recently, Jaylen was a Field Organizer through the Democratic National Committee’s Organizing Corps this summer. Jaylen aims to amplify everyone’s voice in a cohesive manner as we prepare for the high stakes of 2020. She is excited to make comprehensive change in our media platforms, internal and external communications, and connect passionate individuals to their local chapters by allowing YDG to be the face of youth engagement and advocacy in our state.
