I am the Diversity Projekt. This is my personal space in the universe to share stories about the ways in which I navigate the world as mixed, queer, trans-national and multi-cultural. I share my struggles and successes. I share my life!
Over the years I have also incorporated conversations about my life as a community organizer, the ways I am unpacking the vast, interconnectedness of liberation work across social justice issues, and the amazing movement family who I have built with along the way.
In telling my own stories of standing up AGAINST racism, homophobia, sexism and classism and FOR rights, empowerment, diversity, education, economic strength, and choices for marginalized communities, I hope to provide individuals with the language and tools necessary to contribute to working toward equity and justice in their own communities.
I am addicted and captivated by the written word (check me out on GoodReads), often express my love for those around me through food (I make an amazing Macaroni & Cheese and Chicken Marsala) and am rejuvenated by exploring the world around me. I was born and raised in Germany and recently moved to Oakland, CA (after a brief stop in Atlanta, GA), a place I have fallen in love with and am making my home!
The Diversity Projekt envisions a world that is equitable and just and we believe that promoting initiatives, causes and individuals who are moving their communities, families and themselves towards that vision is paramount to achieving this goal.
