Dallas native, Ke'Yonna Hall started her professional journey as a Congressional Intern in the U.S. House of Representatives where she earned a Congressional Recognition Award for Outstanding Constituent Service and was quickly distinguished as a force for change. Her years in organizing and advocacy taught her that regardless of the makeup of an audience, she should always use her voice to make plain the complex issues plaguing marginalized communities.

andrea reyes, policy and advocacy coordinator
Andrea Reyes Sierra is the Policy and Advocacy Coordinator with Deeds not Words. She is a first-generation American and proud Chicana born and raised in El Paso, TX. She earned her dual Bachelors in International Politics and Microbiology from the University of Texas at El Paso. As a young activist inspired by the strong women in her community, she believes in ‘passing the mic’ and weaponizing local narratives by uplifting the voice of the youth. Motivated by the opportunity to work alongside like-minded organizers to hold federal and local-representatives accountable, her enthusiasm for using advocacy and outreach techniques as a tool for progressive change has led her to spearhead movements in the borderland region. Her ardor for immigrant advocacy has also led her to advocate for migrant rights serving as the communications liaison for the Detained Migrant Solidarity Committee as well as serving as a co-founder to Education Not Deportation (END), a student led coalition seeking to protect DACA recipients from unjust immigration laws such as SB4 in Texas. Apart from movement work, Andrea’s experience stems from having five political campaigns under her belt ranging from the local, state, and national levels. Most recently, she served as Field Manager for Beto O’Rourke’s campaign in the borderland. Currently based in Austin, Andrea is eager to learn more about issues that directly affect women and how together we can work towards social and political change!
