Senior Vice President, Strategy
Autumn Leva is an attorney who has spent the last decade advocating for families at both the state and national levels of government—and from both within and outside government. She has a breadth of political experience from statewide issue campaigns, federal candidate campaigns, voter engagement and get-out-the-vote efforts, independent expenditures in state and federal races, and state and federal election compliance.
In her role, Autumn leads the teams that collaborate with state and national allies to advance or defeat legislation that directly impacts families; develop comprehensive policy, elections, communications, and grassroots mobilization strategy; micro-target key voters to impact critical elections; equip the grassroots to engage on policy and political issues that matter to families; and train and support elected leaders who advocate for families in the mission field of public office.
Autumn came to Family Policy Alliance from the state family policy organization Minnesota Family Council, where she served as MFC’s Director of Policy and Communications. She was the spokesperson for a statewide ballot measure in Minnesota, and she has developed policy from within government as a Legislative and Executive Assistant to a U.S. Congressman from Colorado.
Autumn has also served as a summer associate in the Heritage Foundation’s legal center, studied international human rights law in Strasbourg, France, and led a research team in developing a 50-state textbook on civil procedure. Autumn holds a Bachelor of Arts in Elementary Education and a J.D. from Regent University School of Law. She is licensed to practice law in Virginia.
Autumn and her husband, also an attorney, live in Colorado with their full-of-personality toddler, and golden retriever.
