Campaign Strategist


Engagement and Mobilization



Lorena Diaz is a campaign strategist at the ACLU of Maryland. In this role she helps her Department design and conduct sustained organizing campaigns to build civic engagement to support directly impacted communities, community leaders, and their allies in efforts to achieve policy change in Central Maryland (Baltimore City and County, and Prince George's County).

Born in Baltimore to two immigrant parents, Lorena spent her adolescence with her grandparents in their native country, El Salvador. This gave Lorena the tools to become completely bilingual in both English and Spanish and laid the foundation for who she is today. Lorena has a BA in Government and Politics, and minors in Portuguese and Latin American Studies.
Lorena is a former volunteer board member at the Baltimore Abortion Fund, an organization that exists to help pay the cost of an abortion and provide practical support for people who live in or are traveling to Maryland for their healthcare procedure. Before joining the ACLU team, Lorena worked at CASA and House of Ruth MD, where she helped strengthen community engagement and outreach in Baltimore City and Baltimore County's immigrant communities.
