Ana Sanz Saumeth

Ana Sanz Saumeth (she/they) attended Florida A&M University where she began to feel empowered through her identity as a first-generation, queer, non-binary, Afro-Caribbean femme. Early on they became involved with campus policy and state reform through the lens of racial justice, LGBTQIA+ rights, and reproductive health justice. This communal work also extended from local grassroots organizations to nationally recognized non-profits. Ana received their Masters at Florida International University where she continued to engage in advocacy work through accessible exhibition work that focused on underrepresented identities. Ana started her career in anti sexual violence by working with leading student organizers across the nation in actions involving anti-sexual violence advocacy while encouraging students to be involved at a national level, on their campuses, and in their local communities. They advocated much of this as an educator in Miami-Dade county’s public school system where she empowered students to deconstruct systems of oppression through their own dialogue and lived experiences. They have also taken their expertise to working at an organization that works specifically with the anti violence/domestic violence sphere that catered to black women. In this role she served as a specialist to HBCUs across the nation, providing technical assistance, creating conferences, and training under a grant program within the Depart of Justice. Most recently, they were a community manager for a political initiative that revolves around empowering state legislation in order to create necessary policy changes to protect our democracy.
