Detroit Action Strategist

A Detroit native, Rhiannon is passionate about connecting people to resources whether funds, information or other people. Inspired by the will, spirit, and innovation of the residents of Detroit, Rhiannon is committed to working with often marginalized communities towards sustainable change. Much of her background is in community organizing and outreach.

Working closely within the LGBTQ communities in Detroit and metro Detroit, she has been an advocate for inclusive public policy, the end of workplace discrimination, and visibility of marginalized identities. Rhiannon will earn her Masters in Social Justice in May 2016 from Marygrove College. She actively combines her undergraduate degree in photography with her social justice passion to increase visibility of the often unheard.
