Jovany Medina

North County Field Organizer

Jovany was born and raised in Santa Barbara County where he attended local public schools. He first got involved in community organizing work while attending High School in Santa Maria, and after graduating, working with CAUSE, House of Pride and Equality (HOPE), and Future Leaders of America (FLA). In these roles he helped plan Pride in Santa Maria, led phone banking and canvassing efforts, and created safe spaces for local youth. Additionally, Jovany worked as an organizer for several Democratic Party-endorsed local campaigns in the area. Jovany is looking forward to continuing to organize in North Santa Barbara County, and using his intersecting identities to serve the communities he resides in.
