Bio: Amy Patricia Morales is a graduate of Florida State University with a degree in Political Science. At Florida State, Amy was a Global Scholar leading her to research abroad in Tijuana, MX.

In 2020, Amy was a Young People's Policy Priorities Organizing Fellow at Engage Miami, where she led the alternatives to incarceration work. This was followed by Amy becoming a Lideres Avanzando Fellow for Unidos US (Fmr. National Council of La Raza) where she researched higher education policy and co-authored a policy memo calling for the expansion of FAFSA funding to be inclusive to TPS, DACA, and undocumented students. Outside of community organizing, Amy is a multi-disciplinary cultural worker documenting the stories of her people through truth telling and radical imagining.
