Alexandra Hunt is a public health researcher, a girls’ soccer coach, an advocate for social, racial, economic, and environmental justice, and an organizer.
She is a daughter of two teachers and a sister to a twin brother. Alexandra’s twin brother grew up with a learning disability. Seeing the systemic obstacles her brother faced inspired Alexandra to become an advocate and challenge barriers on the basis of race, gender, class, and ability.
In 2022, Alexandra ran for Congress on a progressive platform because she believes our politicians should fight for systemic change, ensuring equal opportunity and justice for all. She is now continuing her advocacy, and continuing to work with community groups and organizations to bring about a more compassionate, just, and fair Philadelphia for all.
