Tony Navarrete is a community organizer born and raised in Arizona. A 2004 graduate of Carl Hayden Community High School, he grew up in West Phoenix in a home built by his grandfather.

He's worked to support access to affordable health care and fair housing, as well as the fair treatment of immigrant communities through Neighborhood Ministries and Promise Arizona, where he led the registration of over 35,000 new Arizona voters.
As a West Valley homeowner and member of AFSCME Local 2384, Tony believes in creating jobs that pay well so working families achieve economic security. In addition, as a member of the LGBT community, Tony believes in equality under the law. He has worked as a steering committee member for the National Alliance for Hispanic Families, a board member for Arizona's Ryan White Planning Council, and as Democratic Chair in Legislative District 30.
