Mindy Romero is an adjunct fellow at the Public Policy Institute of California and an assistant research professor at the University of Southern California’s Sol Price School of Public Policy. A political sociologist by training, she is also the founder and director of the California Civic Engagement Project, a nonpartisan civic engagement research and outreach initiative headquartered at the Price School’s campus in Sacramento. Her research focuses on political behavior and race/ethnicity. Her publications explore the shifting landscape of political representation in California, including the implications of a surging Latino electorate and the often unintended consequences of voting reforms on public participation in the electoral process. She is especially interested in how voters perceive, engage in, and seek to reinvent the electoral process using new technologies and forms of activism. She served on the PPIC Statewide Survey Advisory Committee from 2016-2018; she also chairs the boards of California Common Cause and Mutual Housing California, and serves on the board of the California Latino Economic Institute. She holds an MA and a PhD in sociology from the University of California, Davis.
