Reclaim the Sector

Pronouns: she/they
I'm a white queer trans woman building community in the pursuit of transformative justice. My main project -- Reclaim the Sector -- is an organizing and consulting effort seeking to radicalize the nonprofit sector towards this purpose. Unlike most equity consultants I don't focus on creating "woke" leaders. Instead I help nonprofits create new decision making and accountability structures that ensure real power is in the hands of community members.

I bring to this work over a decade of nonprofit experience, personal experiences of trauma and marginalization, and the many rich relationships that sustain me and inform my vision of a better world. Also, I'm into quilting, cooking without a recipe, and not taking myself too seriously.
