Karlos Guana Schmieder, whose mother, Jeanne Gauna, was the founder and long term co-director of the Southwest Organizing Project (SWOP) in Albuquerque, is the communications director for the Center for Media Justice (CMJ) and "works with alliances to create communications strategies that really uplift and highlight their goals as an alliance."

Schmieder has been creating strategies with the Detention Watch Network, which is an immigrant rights alliance that focuses specifically on immigrant detention.
