Ali Kurnaz is a strategist at the intersection of digital marketing and movement-building with one leading philosophy: to push the boundaries of possibilities and produce the best quality work as a representation of who we are.
Ali has a strong history of cultivating strong public, community, and government relationships, and his passion for grassroots organizing and digital talent has been instrumental for government officials, social nonprofits, and international NGOs alike. He has been appointed and elected to leadership positions in the Democratic Party, ran winning political campaigns, written scripts and speeches for candidates and officials, and served as the first Muslim American legislative aide in the Florida Senate.
During the 2018 and 2020 elections, Ali grew the Florida Democratic Party’s digital footprint by more than 500% with creative and interactive campaigns: it became the first American political party to launch TikTok and Twitch channels, launching multiple viral campaigns and dozens of microsites for Florida and national campaigns. The work of Ali and his team were highlighted in multiple national news outlets as game-changing, including a full story in Time Magazine and several of his work featured on HBO.
Ali earned the Presidential Volunteer Service Award from President Obama in recognition of his grassroots work registering voters. He has been a formal guest to the White House for his demonstrated social media experience and a second time for dinner with President Obama for his community work in support of Obamacare. At the age of 24, Ali was elected a Party Leader Delegate to the 2016 Democratic National Convention on behalf of Senator Bernie Sanders. He is a Florida Politics 30 Under 30 award recipient and a UCF Alumni 30 Under 30 award recipient. Whatever the odds, he sticks to his motto: “Fair is worth fighting for.”
Let’s talk about building power together.
