I am a Peer Support Specialist, community social justice organizer, cultural competency consultant, blogger, as well as legal advocate. I am also the Founder and Executive Director of PDX Trans* Pride, as well as Founder and Co-Director of the annual Portland Trans* Pride March, in Portland, Oregon.
I have engaged with the USDOJ Civil Rights Division, the National ACLU, ACLU of Oregon, Disability Rights Oregon, NCLR, and Mental Health America of Oregon in order to fight social injustices and achieving greater equality for the mental health disability and LGBTQI communities, as well as fighting discrimination in the acquisition of medically necessary healthcare for herself as well as other transgender citizens, helping to pass a recent landmark decision under the Health Evidence Review Commission, reprioritizing transgender health care, allowing for holistic medical care for Medicaid recipients, including SRS and hormone replacement therapy.
PDX Trans* Pride is a burgeoning local grass roots community organization for transgender persons in the Pacific NW region. Members are encouraged to build community, as we grow into a versatile and positive transgender social organization, benefiting the lives of trans*individuals through our community activities, including the annual Portland Trans* Pride March at the Pride Festival in Portland, Oregon.
The Portland Trans* Pride March partners up with multiple nonprofit organizations to create an integral community, in the Portland, Oregon region.
PDX Trans* Pride also creates positive and accessible platforms for transgender persons to dialogue about transgender issues and concerns, including equal health care access, education, building community, developing authentic spirituality and in nourishing a culture of non-judgmentality.
