Ananda Tomas (she/hers) is the current Executive Director for ACT 4 SA, and the former Deputy Director of Fix SAPD, which ran the Proposition B campaign in San Antonio last May. This initiative would have removed the current police contract in an effort to create a new contract that created stronger police discipline and transparency to the public. Although the ballot initiative failed by a mere 2%, it has changed the conversation around police accountability and taking on problematic police contracts across Texas and the nation.
Before organizing for police accountability in San Antonio, Ananda attended the University of Texas at San Antonio where she received her Master’s in Political Science. Before this, Ananda worked on several electoral races in several states, including serving as a Regional Field Director for the Bernie 2016 campaign and helping elect a State Senator in Oregon in 2014. She received her Bachelor’s in Social Work and Sociology from Eastern New Mexico University in 2012.
