Pamela Mejia

Senior Manager of Government Relations



Pamela is a Senior Manager of Government Relations at ML Strategies, and is based in Washington, D.C. Pamela helps manage several relationships with a wide range of clients, and provides creative strategies to help them reach a broad set of policy influencers in Washington.

She advises clients within the healthcare industry on navigating interactions with Members of Congress and health officials on existing regulatory challenges. She also assists them in articulating the equity components of their healthcare legislative priorities to the federal government. In addition to healthcare, Pamela offers strategic guidance and messaging support to social justice organizations for their engagement with Members of Congress concerning legislation and federal funding opportunities.

Pamela is active in the Congressional Black Associates and Black Women’s Congressional Alliance, an officially House-recognized, bipartisan Congressional Staff Organizations whose mission is to enhance the political, social, and economic capabilities of Black people, and women on Capitol Hill. She also engages with the Congressional Hispanic Staff Association, an official, non-partisan, bicameral Congressional Staff Organization whose mission is to recruit, retain, and advance Hispanic staffers in the Congress.

Prior to joining ML Strategies, Pamela was the Legislative Affairs Manager for the Community Justice Action Fund, a nonprofit organization that mobilizes communities of color to tackle the causes of gun violence. In that role, she oversaw the organization’s engagement with federal lawmakers on legislation, appropriations bills, and budget funding and led a coalition of national, state, and local organizations focused on building support for evidence-based solutions to address gun violence in underserved communities. 

Previously, as a Staff Assistant to US Representative Katherine Clark (D–MA), she prepared legislative documents related to immigration, health care, and educational issues. She also worked for now-retired Congressman José E. Serrano (D–NY) and then US Representative Ben Ray Luján (D–NM), who is now in the US Senate, and the Justice Center for the Protection of People with Special Needs, back in her home state of New York.
