campaign for a hundred-organization coalition to block a planned unit for
transgender women at a notoriously unsafe detention facility. At the National
LGBTQ Task Force, they worked with the groundbreaking National Transgender
Discrimination Survey to create accessible advocacy tools, focusing on
communities of color domestically and internationally. They continue to be
involved in the queer movement as a volunteer, designer, and artist.
