Deputy Executive Director
Sarah Pybus was introduced to campaign and advocacy work as a sophomore political science student at Virginia Wesleyan University, where she volunteered on a local campaign. She was elected president of both her university’s Young Democrats Chapter as well as Marlin Votes, the non-partisan voter registration organization on campus. During her senior year, she was invited to Ohio to organize on college campuses for the 2016 presidential campaign. Over three months, she registered over 3,000 students to vote.
Sarah attended the University of Pittsburgh School of Law, where she specialized in human rights issues. She spent summers interning for non-profits and NGOs, and spent the 2020 election cycle working as a state coordinator for the Feminist Majority Foundation, where she ran the campus voter registration program in Michigan. After graduation, Sarah moved to Kosovo as a Fulbright Scholar to conduct legal research for a human rights nonprofit. Now back stateside, Sarah has made North Carolina her home, where she is expanding access to the ballot through her work at NCVP.
