Caroline Mak

Field and Research Coordinator
Nonprofit VOTE

Caroline (she/her) is the Field and Research Coordinator at Nonprofit VOTE where she supports and evaluates nonprofits doing in-person and digital voter engagement across multiple states. Her involvement in this space began a few years ago as a student at MIT where she registered to vote for the first time and encouraged her peers to do the same. Working to increase participation among ‘unlikely’ voters with little political knowledge like herself, her work culminated in a fast-growing nonpartisan campus group that worked across departments, administrative offices, and student groups. From this education and mobilization, she was awarded the MIT institute award for “Bridge Builder”. As a 2nd generation Asian-American, she is proud to continue supporting the power nonprofit voter engagement has to build community.
