Executive Director Lydia Grijalva
Lydia Grijalva (they or she) has been involved in education, activism, and nonprofit work on the west coast for 15 years, and has been working in independent publishing in Portland for 4 years. Their background blends together a variety of disciplines: from theatre, music, photography, and creative writing, to environmental science, political science, and child development science. Lydia’s lifelong experiences being poor, Chicanx, queer, disabled/chronically ill, and formerly houseless have fueled their lifelong motivation to contribute to a variety of social justice efforts. No matter what projects they’re involved in, Lydia works to increase accessibility and break barriers that silence oppressed folks.
