Branden Shafer


Branden Shafer is the Organizing and Political Manager at One Colorado.

Prior to joining the One Colorado family in March 2020, Branden worked on the presidential campaign of Senator Kamala Harris in New Hampshire. His start in electoral organizing came during his freshman year of college on President Obama’s re-election campaign in Ann Arbor. Before finishing college, Branden joined Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaign and traveled throughout the primary before co-leading the youth vote program in Colorado.

His passion for organizing, building strong teams, and pushing the boundaries led him to join Jared Polis’ historical gubernatorial campaign. Branden was the first in his family to attend college, attending the University of Michigan. He is excited to build on One Colorado’s work to expand our mobilization and education programming around the needs of LGBTQ Coloradans.

Outside the office, you can catch Branden at a beach or in the mountains, reading a new book, or watching anything Shonda Rhimes-related.
