Alyssa Wallace

Field Organizer

Alyssa Wallace, a proud Laredoan and Texas native, earned her degree in Political Science with a minor in Communication from Texas A&M International University (TAMIU). While studying at TAMIU, Alyssa took a course on Texas State Government that sparked her passion for creating change. The course, led by Dr. Maria A Reyes, now Deputy Director of Commission Shift, inspired Alyssa to join local organizations to make a difference in her community.

Joining MOVE Texas, a nonpartisan, nonprofit organization, Alyssa became the first issue advocacy fellow for Laredo. She organized events that encouraged underrepresented youth communities to participate in local, state, and national elections. As a result, Alyssa became an advocate for environmental protection, oil and gas, and climate change, leading her to connect with Virginia Palacios, Executive Director of Commission Shift. Alyssa joined Commission Shift as a Field Organizer to continue her work in community engagement and accountability in Texas government. Alyssa is committed to addressing multigenerational issues and believes in the power of engaging the public to make a difference in the world.
