| April 30, 2014 | Comments (0)

 

We have some incredible folks joining our team and want to share a little more about our incoming Racial Justice and Alliance Building organizers adding their skills and expertise to our work here at Basic Rights Oregon.

 

Lakia

 

Lakia Davis has been an activist for queer rights since middle school, and has a Masters in Clinical Psychology specializing in LGBT Affirmative Psychology. She originally moved to Oregon to work on the Oregon United for Marriage campaign. Her work at Basic Rights Oregon to advance racial and social justice within the LGBT community over the long term will allow her to make the most of her experience on the campaign and the relationships she’s built in Oregon. Lakia strives to create a space in which individuals are encouraged to state their feelings and experiences without judgment or misrepresentation. 

 

   
 Adrian

 

Adrian Martinez first joined the Basic Rights Oregon team in 2013 as a National Gay and Lesbian Task Force fellow working with the Oregon United for Marriage campaign. Shortly after, they worked as the Trans Justice Summit Coordinator with our Transgender Justice team. Adrian has also built student power with the Oregon Student Foundation, fundraised as a campaign assistant with the Yes on F Campaign in Los Angeles, taught sex-ed to queer youth of color with ImMEDIAte Justice, and co-founded ELL@S- a Los Angeles feminist art collective.
