Northeastern Regional Committee, Facilitation Working CommitteeHe/Him/His Connecticut
I was born and raised in Willimantic, Connecticut, the same town that would later foster my growth as an activist through a food justice program called GROW Windham. The program provided me with a passion for social justice as well as a skillset I use on a daily basis to fight for others. My passion for helping others attain the tools and resources they need to fight against systems of oppression are what help guide me in my work. As a transgender man, I notice the many struggles that face the transgender community. TRUTH provides me with the opportunity to create a voice for people like myself, learn more about activism, and meet other young trans activists from all over my nation. I am excited to see the movement and impact we create, and I am deeply honored to be a TRUTH Council member.
