Sophia is running for Lakewood City Council, Ward 2, in the fall 2021 election to improve and protect the quality of life, dignity, and health of all of Lakewood. Lakewood deserves more than the status quo, and she will fight to represent those communities least heard in local government. Her platform is especially focused on sustainability, mental health services, and ensuring Lakewood is affordable and livable for all residents.
Sophia is the Director of State Partnerships for the League of Conservation Voters, a national environmental organization, where she focuses on race and equity issues within the environmental movement. She previously worked at Conservation Colorado as a transportation and environmental justice advocate, and has additional experience as a community organizer. She was born in the San Luis Valley and is an Emerge Colorado Alumnae. Though she is a relatively new Lakewood resident (7 years), she chose it as her forever home, which she shares with her Husband, Curtis, and her three dogs, Zuko, Xix, and Annika.
