David Ayala
Community Organizer, Southeast Office

David is focused on campaigns around the criminal justice system. David is a native of Brooklyn, NY and was raised by his Spanish-speaking mother. Needing to survive the English-speaking inner city, he became bilingual and bicultural as both Puerto Rican and African American.

David has an Associates of Arts degree in Business Administration from Valencia Community College, en route to his Bachelor of Arts at the University of Central Florida where his focus is non-profit management and business administration. 

He is an active member of his church, Rejoice in the Lord Ministries. He is happily married to his wife of eight years, Aramis Ayala, and a proud father to daughters Aliyah and Alanah. While he has a passion to advocate for criminal justice reform what he enjoys during his free time are movies, traveling and simple quality time with his family.

President and General Counsel

"There is an urgent need today … to analyze the intersection of police reforms, changes in the penal system and drug policy in this country. In reality, Latinos are disproportionately and negatively affected by police and criminal system practices that discriminate against them but rarely involve them in forging solutions."
