“Gabriella will be speaking about the work of her office and the importance of Diversity, Equity and Inclusion policies across government.
Gabriella Cázares-Kelly (she/her) is the Pima County Recorder, taking office in January 2021. She leads an office that oversees voter registration, early voting, and document recording for the county. She is a proud, union-dues-paying, former #RedForEd public school educator and community organizer. She is one of four women who co-founded
Indivisible Tohono, a grassroots, community organization that provides opportunities for education and civic engagement for members of her tribe, the Tohono O’odham Nation. She was inspired to run for office after encountering many systemic barriers preventing people from simply getting registered to vote. She lives with her husband, Ryan, and their two children, who are now voting age. She is the first Native American to hold an elected
Pima County office and one of only four Native Americans to ever hold a county-level office in Arizona. Her Twitter handles are @GabriellaCKelly & @PimaRecorder.”
