Sisto Campana is a candidate for the Master of Global Policy Studies (DC Concentration) at the LBJ School. He is a cum laude graduate in urban studies from the University of Pittsburgh, with a minor in philosophy, and is interested in international worker’s rights and fair housing practices/policies for immigrants as well as U.S. citizens. While earning his undergraduate degree, Campana interned for Pennsylvania House Rep. Dom Costa and the nonprofit political strategy and fundraising firm SPB Strategies. After graduating, he worked at a local nonprofit, Pittsburgh United, where he campaigned for a housing opportunity fund for Pittsburgh’s low-income residents. After the campaign ended, he worked in an apprenticeship in union organizing for Service Employees International Union, where he fought for hospital workers’ rights. Campana’s interest in international policy came from his two years as an Auxiliar de Conversación, teaching English for Spain’s Ministerio de Educacion, Cultura y Deporte.

He hopes to find a Policy Apprenticeship in Washington, DC focused on international workers’ rights and federal fair housing policies.

Policy interests: International labor rights, international development, fair housing policy
