A fourth-generation Texan, Olivia Julianna has already made history at just 19 years old. Named one of the 50 most influential people of 2022 by Bloomberg, Julianna’s work as a political strategist launched her into the director of Politics and Government affairs for Gen-Z for Change.
Julianna identifies as a queer, plus-sized, disabled Latina. She is a first-generation college graduate whose work has inspired people across generations both in her home state of Texas and throughout the world. She has motivated others to fight back against dangerous abortion restrictions, climate pollution and homophobia. Her professional work and personal activism have paved the way for others to speak out against hate.
In July 2022, Julianna raised $2 million for the Gen-Z for Choice Abortion Fund after U.S. Republican Congressman Matt Gaetz publicly bullied and attempted to body shame her. Bloomberg Media named Julianna one of the 50 Most Influential People of 2022.
