For over 10 years, Julie has worked as a professional writer, editor, and activist, fighting for a variety of progressive causes. Julie’s passion for education, LGBTQ equality, reproductive rights, racial justice, and the environment has taken them to cities around the world, from Denver to Kuala Lumpur. Before joining Basic Rights Oregon, Julie worked as a contributing editor for the sustainable design blog Inhabitat and as a member of Care2’s citizen petition team. When they aren’t managing Basic Rights’ social media or email list, Julie enjoys watching cheesy science fiction, scouring the internet for cute animal gifs, and making art. (Pronouns: They/Them)
