Carson Malbrough is an election protection organizer at the ACLU of Texas, where he works to protect the freedom to vote as part of the Policy & Advocacy team. Originally from Los Angeles, Carson has deep family roots in southeast Texas. He moved to Houston in 2022.
Before joining the ACLU, Carson worked at the Voting Rights Lab where he advocated for legislation to expand ballot access and decrease barriers to political participation in states with histories of voter suppression. He also worked at the Grassroots Law Project where his organizing efforts focused on criminal justice policy reform at the state and local level, as well as wrongful conviction cases. Carson has also worked on electoral campaigns in California, North Carolina, and Texas.
Carson earned his bachelor's degree in political science from Occidental College. He is a 2021 New Leaders Council alumnus and is a proud recipient of the NAACP Legal Defense Fund’s Marshall-Motley scholarship. He is passionate about advancing racial and social justice, and he firmly believes advocacy is most effective when we empower underrepresented and marginalized communities to participate in the process.
