Brianna Lee

Engagement Producer, Civics & Democracy (she/her)

I build relationships with people who have a stake in our reporting, and find creative new ways to reach our audiences. As part of our Civics & Democracy team, I focus on making local government and elections accessible, and highlighting all the ways people can flex their individual power to make change in their communities. If you've ever used Voter Game Plan to help fill out your ballot, chances are you've used a guide that I wrote (especially if it's for an obscure, down-ballot office).

Previously, I spent four years as our newsroom’s social media lead, spearheading social strategy and engaging audiences on our digital platforms. I love comics and zines, and am always looking for ways to incorporate them into our journalism.

Before working here, I wrote about immigration and international affairs for the International Business Times, Council on Foreign Relations and WNET in New York City. I’m originally from San Francisco, but am not really into the whole NorCal vs. SoCal thing.

I love all of the Asian food in Los Angeles. All of it.

What questions do you have about flexing your power in Southern California?
Brianna Lee writes about voting, navigating local government and what individual residents can do to make the changes they want to see in their community.
