Andy Escobar

Texas State Organizer

Andy Escobar (he/they) is a born and raised Tejanx from Cypress in the Houston area. Andy is a vegan, intersectional feminist, bisexual, non-binary, Xicanx man from a working class background.

They were the first in their family to graduate from higher education with a B.S. in Radio-Television-Film, B.A. in Latin American Studies, and B.A. in Women’s and Gender Studies from The University of Texas at Austin. His movement work is informed by his experiences in fighting to defend race-based affirmative action at UT in the Supreme Court, supporting low-income trans, gender non-conforming, and intersex folks in NYC, organizing low-income renters living in slum housing in Austin, and organizing students across central Texas during the 2018 midterm elections.

They spend their free time running long distances, dreaming of a world for every body, and playing with their dog daughters: Sirena & PiƱa.
