As our Director of Campaigns, Ivanna Gonzalez coordinates our issue-based organizing work in voting and housing rights, and reproductive, climate, and criminal justice to ensure that Florida Rising’s members are winning equitable investments in our communities across Florida. Ivanna is a first-generation immigrant from Caracas, Venezuela, and was raised in Miami. She began organizing alongside campus workers as a student at UNC‐Chapel Hill where she got her degree in political science and public policy. For over five years, she was on staff at Blueprint NC, the state’s civic engagement partnership, where she served as a project coordinator, interim co-director, and deputy director of policy and alignment. She supported local and state partner-led coalitions for police accountability, immigrant justice, and redistricting education and reform.
