Jessica Zender - One Colorado Team 2
Denver Political Organizer

Jessica Zender


Jessica Zender is the Denver Area Organizer for One Colorado. After a 20 year career as a policy analyst in state government, she wanted to put her time and energy into building grassroots power within the LGBTQ community, and started with One in 2020. In 2017 she was a co-founder of Indivisible Denver, a citizen-led, all volunteer progressive grassroots organization. She is an Emerge Colorado 2019 graduate, and has worked on progressive candidate campaigns ranging from Barack Obama’s 2008 presidential run, to local RTD, city council, and school board races. In 2019 she was awarded the Colorado Democratic Party Volunteer of the Year Award. Her passion is demystifying representative government and empowering people to participate in every arena where decisions are being made. A proud parent of a trans teenager, she knows that none of us are free until all of us are free. She lives in Denver with her husband, teen, and a veritable herd of cats.
