Lorena Chambers, CEO of Chambers Lopez Strategies LLC, is the only Latina — and one of only two women — to have produced television broadcast commercials for a US presidential campaign. In 2018, she was the media strategist for PowerPAC Georgia’s campaign advocating for Stacey Abrams in her run for Governor of Georgia, and for Senate Majority PAC’s win in Nevada to elect Jacky Rosen as US Senator.
A top-tier political consultant, Chambers worked with Priorities USA in 2012 and 2016 presidential cycles, leading the CLS team in developing and producing award-winning television and radio advertisements. She led the development of advertising strategies for I.E. expenditures on behalf of SEIU and PFAW to deliver 71% of Latino voters and re-elect President Obama in 2012. Chambers has worked consistently to turn Virginia blue by driving the awakening of Virginia Hispanic voters: she is a Founding Member of the Democratic Latinos of Virginia (DLOV) and media consultant in the successful Gubernatorial races of Governors Northam, McAuliffe, Kaine, and Warner. In Nevada 2010, she produced “devastating spots” against Sharron Angle that contributed to the margin of victory for then-Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid in Nevada. In 2004, the John Kerry for President campaign chose Chambers to lead its Latino voter advertising campaign.
As part of CLS’s social marketing activities, Chambers has designed media campaigns to combat human trafficking in the Dominican Republic, and has spearheaded counter-trafficking multi-media productions for the US Department of Justice and the Stability Pact Anti-Trafficking Task Force of the Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe (OSCE) in Vienna, Austria.
A graduate of UCLA and the University of Michigan, Chambers focused her graduate studies on the intersection of American history and feminist theory, analyzing the representation of Latinos in advertising and entertainment. She taught in the Department of History and the Department of Women’s Studies at the University of Michigan, and in the Department of Chicano Studies at the University of California, Santa Barbara. Among other engagements, Chambers has appeared as a political analyst on CNN en Español, Univision, Telemundo, Perspectiva Nacional, and Destination Casa Blanca with Ray Suarez. She sits on the Board, the Ethics Committee, and the Executive Committee of the American Association of Political Consultants (AAPC).
