Elizabeth Wright

Policy and Programs Coordinator

Elizabeth recently graduated from Southwestern University with a Bachelor of Arts in Political Science. During her undergraduate years, she examined conflict, foreign affairs, and national security in regards to US/MENA relations. Outside of the classroom, Elizabeth became passionate about MPAC’s policy platforms such as religious freedom and immigration through her experiences engaging in interfaith activism at the Interfaith Youth Core’s summer institute, lobbying in favor of DACA and TPS with Church World Service, and writing for the online initiative, Middle East Collective.

She has presented research on women in terror at the 11th Biennial ACS Gender Studies Conference, discussed her analysis of the 2016 election at the Southwestern University Creative Works Symposium, and published her senior Capstone on domestic dragnet surveillance in the post-9/11 era in the International Association of Political Science Students (IAPSS) academic journal. This fall, she will begin a Masters program in Security Policy Studies at the George Washington University Elliott School of International Affairs specifically focusing on artificial intelligence, dragnet surveillance, and the future of war.

Elizabeth is a former Policy Intern and a 2017 Young Leader and MPAC Summit alumna.
