HIPS, Developmental Coordinator
Pronouns: She/ Her/ Hers
Raised in Washington, DC, I have valued the opportunity to give back to my community through my work at HIPS for the LGBTQ Community. I haven’t always worked in the “traditional way.” At HIPS, as Developmental Coordinator, I organize with our community, develop fundraising plans, participate in solving logistical issues and collaborate with multiple colleagues and departments. I also participate in the Sex Worker Advocates Coalition (S.W.A.C) to address the disproportionate impact of criminal laws on trans women of color, in particular those engaged in or perceived to be engaged in sex work. Achieving three proclamations for the International day to End Violence Against Sex Workers, December 17th 2016, 2017, and 2018. It was the first time ever the words “Sex Workers” was written in a proclamation.
I am proud to focus on giving my best efforts to providing opportunities to TRANS Men and Women of Washington DC as well as the L.G.B.T.Q.A. Community, making the Community, a better Space, Understanding SELF, while learning to Understand Others… Unity in Our Community…
