ACTIVISM + ORGANIZING

SUNRISE MOVEMENT

I am an organizer with the national Sunrise Movement, where I facilitate phone banks and do a variety of other things. In the primary, I worked on Ed Markey's Senate re-election campaign, helping take him from 17 points down in the polls to a 10 point win. In the general election, I was the Texas phonebank lead, working primarily on the campaigns of Julie Oliver and Mike Siegel. I also led swing state phonebanks, including one with Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and Julian Castro. I spoke to 700+ people at the 2020 general election campaign launch and to another few thousand (including Mark Ruffalo) on an Instagram live. I encourage you to join Sunrise! Reach out to me if you need help getting involved. 

#OPENYOURLOBBY

Exeunt Magazine quoted me in their article about the movement for theaters to open their lobbies to protesters: "Gonzalez at first shared the letter mostly with former interns, but it spread quickly. Over 300 members of the tight-knit Public community, from artists, to interns, to front of house staff, signed within just a day. 'I spent my whole afternoon and evening just approving signatures,' she recalls. By Wednesday, June 3rd, the Public announced that it was opening its lobby, tweeting: 'NYC, we hear you.'"

JANE'S DUE PROCESS

I'm a volunteer for Jane's Due Process, an organization that helps young people in Texas navigate parental consent laws on abortion and birth control, where I answer the phone and text hotline. Donate to JDP! 

OTHER

I am listening to Why Is This Happening? with Chris Hayes and Deconstructed by Ryan Grim. I am reading Tio Bernie by Chuck Rocha. At some point, I will finish reading A People's History of the Supreme Court by Peter Irons and De Colores Means All of Us by Elizabeth Martínez. Democracy Now! is my main and beloved news source.
