Giovanni Escobedo

Giovanni Escobedo joined Raise Your Hand Texas in fall 2019 as the regional advocacy director for the Rio Grande Valley. He has served more than 15 years as a community organizer and activist working with local, state, and national governments to address education, equity, and immigration issues. His passion for connecting public policy and government with communities led him to work as a legislative staffer for the United States Congress and the Texas Senate. Recently, he served as a legislative assistant for State Senator Juan “Chuy” Hinojosa.

Giovanni grew up in Dallas, where he had the opportunity to attend and graduate from Thomas Jefferson High School, a Texas Title I public school. He received a Bachelor of Arts in political science from the University of Texas – Rio Grande Valley. As a proud first-generation college graduate, Giovanni is thrilled to work alongside his South Texas community to strengthen public education.
