Challenging Injustice, Advancing Human Rights

Ana Maria De La Rosa

Senior Grassroots Organizer

Ana Maria De La Rosa joined UUSC in February 2019 as a Senior Grassroots Organizer. She specifically works with the Migrant Justice and Climate-Forced Displacement campaigns.

Ana Maria is a first generation daughter of Latinx immigrants and her organizing style is rooted in diasporic analysis of the Black and Brown experience in the U.S. She was raised in Orlando, Florida where her connection to social justice movements was shaped by the political climate of the south, the resilience of her community and access to local, strong grassroots networks building for justice. Her strategy for organizing globally-building locally is in part shaped by her U.S. Peace Corps service in Northern Peru as a Community Health Organizer. She has dedicated her life’s work to supporting historically oppressed communities in building healing-centered engagement strategies for building power, dismantling racism, and connecting with joy.

Ana Maria earned her bachelor’s degree in Political Science, Pre Law and International and Global Studies from the University of Central Florida, and her Master’s in Health Advocacy from Sarah Lawrence College.
