Victoria (Tori) Wenger

Victoria (Tori) Wenger is an attorney at the NAACP Legal Defense and Educational Fund, Inc. (LDF), where she focuses primarily on voting rights matters. In 2020, Tori served as council in Harding v. Edwards, 484 F. Supp. 3d 299 (M.D. La. 2020), a successful federal challenge to expand critical early voting and absentee-by-mail opportunities in Louisiana during the COVID-19 pandemic. She has since litigated multiple redistricting cases under Section 2 of the Voting Rights Act, advocating for Black voters to have an equal opportunity to elect their candidates of choice in congressional, state legislative, and state appellate court districts. In addition to litigating voting rights cases, Tori coordinates a team of LDF staff engaging in year-round voter education efforts and proactive election administration advocacy work in Louisiana. In this capacity, she has helped author and advance over half a dozen laws to protect and expand voting rights at the state level. 

Tori is a member of the New York Bar and a 2019 graduate of New York University School of Law. She graduated from Harvard University with a joint degree in African American Studies and Government in 2014. Prior to law school, Tori served as a communications associate at Advancement Project in Washington, D.C., where she specialized in voting rights and police accountability.
