The more radical the person is, the more fully she enters into reality so that, knowing it better, she can transform it. She is not afraid to confront, to listen, to see the world unveiled. She is not afraid to meet the people or to enter into a dialogue with them. She does not consider herself the proprietor of history or of all people, or the liberator of the oppressed; but she does commit herself, within history, to struggle at their side.Paolo Freire, “Pedagogy of the Oppressed”
I’m an unapologetic advocate for justice with over a nearly two decades’ worth of experience organizing for social change in a deep red state.
I specialize in race, gender, immigration and LGBTQ+ issues, with a focus on the intersections. I’m a systems thinker with a sharp analysis of institutional and community dynamics. My strengths are in analyzing power, public policy, and community education. I’m particularly good at connecting people, ideas, and groups to make things happen.
And I can really rock a spreadsheet.
