David Graham-Caso is a Senior Communications Specialist for Democracy Forward.

David joins Democracy Forward after having been on the forefront of some exciting and important recent progressive efforts. He led the Sierra Club’s communications work in the Western US to stop new coal-fired power plants from being permitted and to replace those still running with clean energy; he served as the point-person for the LA City Councilmember leading the way toward a $15 minimum wage and the spokesperson for the Councilmember during contentious and crucial debates about how to end homelessness in Los Angeles. David has also led campaigns, including the multimillion dollar effort to defeat Proposition 23 on the 2010 California ballot, as well as the successful underdog campaign to elect the first openly LGBT candidate to citywide office in the history of Los Angeles. Immediately prior to joining Democracy Forward, David served as the Communications Director for the Senate campaign of progressive icon, Representative Barbara Lee.

David grew up in Southern California as the child of public school teachers and union advocates and is a graduate of the University of California at Los Angeles.
