Kalindi Winfield received her BA in History from Yale University, writing on conflicts surrounding decolonization and occupation in Eritrea/Ethiopia and East Timor/Indonesia. While at Columbia and at the LSE, Kalindi studied postcolonial diasporic narratives and ambivalences in modern citizen-hood set against the development of the international system of nation-states. Following graduation she worked in media and research, global and political in nature, then joined the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee’s Independent Expenditure in its 2012 election effort (USA). She worked with the DCCC again on US House candidate recruitment and incumbent protection during the 2014 midterm election cycle. Kalindi left to pursue international political polling and campaign consulting, managing surveys, focus groups, and campaigns in Yemen, Ireland, Estonia, Israel, Canada, Venezuela, Colombia, and Peru. She returned to domestic politics at GBAO, a democratic polling firm that serves political candidates, advocacy groups, unions, and nonprofits advancing a progressive agenda in the US. Kalindi is from Georgia, USA and West Bengal, India, and is passionate about politics, social movements, and art in both areas.
