Logan Smith, Field Organizer

Logan@CAclean.org

Logan Smith is an environmental activist and advocate from the Santa Clarita Valley, who discovered field organizing and dived in head first.  He has organized a number of successful campaigns to boost voter registration on college campuses and serves on the board of a civic engagement group dedicated to activating and engaging students.  Logan also sits on a county-level legislative review committee and works with over a dozen grassroots organizations training voters to lobby their elected officials at all levels of government.  In 2016, Logan travelled to the Oceti Sakowin camp in Cannon Ball, North Dakota, to document the ongoing demonstrations against the Dakota Access Pipeline and deliver donations to the Standing Rock Sioux and their allies.

Logan most recently managed the field program of a highly-competitive state legislature campaign in an unfavorable district, moving the needle farther than at any point in the past 40 years.  Logan is studying political science and communications, and is eager to put his organizing talent to work engaging grassroots activists across the state to ensure fair elections in California.
