Andrea Pino        

Women's & Civil Rights Activist; Founder of End Rape on Campus

Andrea L. Pino-Silva is a public scholar on issues of global gender based violence, media framing of violence, portrayals of gender and sexuality and Latinx identity, and narratives of survivorhood. She is a policy and media strategist committed to bringing together grassroots organizing and radical storytelling to build intersectional and accessible social movements. Pino-Silva believes in the power of stories behind movements, and their unique power to mobilize “everyday activism,” and has worked across progressive movements, with a focus on interpersonal violence.

The daughter of Cuban refugees, Pino-Silva attended The University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill as a first generation college student. She is co-author of “We Believe You: Survivors of Campus Sexual Assault Speak Out,” and Co-Founder of the national survivor advocacy organization End Rape on Campus, where she worked for over five years to support students in learning their rights under Title IX, and in changing their campus sexual assault and harassment policies. Pino-Silva was the Communications Director at the gun violence prevention organization Community Justice Action Fund, and previously led digital communications and engagement at the National Center for Lesbian Rights. Her advocacy has been featured in the New York Times, Vogue, CNN, Good Morning America, as well as many other media outlets. Her work and personal journey is prominently featured in the film The Hunting Ground, which premiered at the 2015 Sundance Film Festival, and she appeared alongside Lady Gaga and 50 other survivors at the 2016 Academy Awards.

Starting August 2021, Pino-Silva will be starting her doctoral studies in American Studies at The University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, pursuing research on the framing of gender based violence survivor movements and global community led solutions to violence.
