Alejandro "Alex" Capote, Appalachian Regional Coordinator
A native of Cuba, Alejandro Capote immigrated to the U.S. at the age of six and, on April 28, 2011, he became a naturalized U.S. citizen. He became the first member of his family to graduate from college, earning a Bachelor of Science in Political Science with a minor in Urban and Regional Planning from Florida State University. Alejandro joined the pro-life movement in 2013 when he helped start a prolife group on the Florida State University campus. He was the Political and Community Director of Noles for Life, where he worked to equip the next generation of pro-life leaders.
Alejandro has always defied the odds. He is not the average voter and activist. Throughout his young life he has worked hard to overcome barriers. Fleeing from Cuba’s Communist Regime, he immediately became engaged in the local politics, learned the language, engrossed himself in the laws of our land, and influenced legislation. His passion for the law and justice has led him to intern in legislative offices, organize trips to educate legislators on Life, speak at right to life conferences, such as at Florida Right to Life and even at the Florida State Capitol Rotunda, where he eloquently spoke of the need to pass laws that protect and respect the dignity of the human person. His activism and skills are encouraging dialogue, strengthening and changing lives.
Now, more than ever, he wants to defy the odds once more, equipping the next generation of pro-life leaders with the tools and resources to abolish abortion in our lifetime. He knows it can be done and it will get done. For “love is the only basis for human relationships that respect in one another the dignity of the children.” Everyone can write the next chapter to America’s history. Be courageous and bold, and stand firmly so that the spines of others are stiffened.
