Zander Moricz is a plaintiff in the “Don’t Say Gay” lawsuit against Governor DeSantis and the state of Florida, as well as the Founder and Executive Director of the Social Equity and Education (SEE) Initiative. Since 2019, Zander has grown the SEE Initiative into a movement of over 2,000 organizers across the United States. In his home state of Florida, the Initiative is leading the student response to hateful legislation through mass organizing and campaign work. With a current focus on the “Don’t Say Gay” law, Zander has given analysis on GMA, CNN, MSNBC, as well as testimony to the Florida Senate. His activism has been written about in the Washington Post, Rolling Stone, Teen Vogue, The Hill, Politico, Vice, The Independent, USA Today, ABC, and NBC. Recently, he went viral for a tweet discussing his graduation speech being censored with over 10 million impressions in 2 days. Orchestrating a statewide protest, SEE sent out 10,000 Say Gay stickers to be worn at gradautions across the state and raised $50,000 in three days to support young organizers. He went viral again when he gave the speech, garnering millions more impressions and a demand for 25,000 more stickers. As the President of the Board at Florida Model United Nations, Florida’s largest independent Model UN program, Zander created an aid fund that established dozens of MUN programs in Title I schools and provides them with coaching, curriculum, and financial support. He is also the Central-Eastern Director of Communications for Diversify Our Narrative—a national organization with over 6,000 organizers. At his school, Zander served as both the first class president to ever be elected all four years and as the first openly-gay class president. Today, Zander is Campaign Manager for a Sarasota County Commission candidate that he hopes will become the first Democrat elected to this role in over 50 years.
