Human Solutions Board Member

Oregon State Representative, David Douglas School Board Member, and Director of Strategic Planning and Initiatives at ACLU of Oregon

Something that inspires me about the work Human Solutions does is the way the organization is dedicated to dismantling institutional white supremacy.

Andrea (friends call her “Drea”) joined the Human Solutions board because she’s seen the organization center racial justice in its housing and economic service delivery. As an East Portland resident herself, she knows how unique this approach is to find. On her weekends, it’s highly likely you’ll find her at Lan Su Chinese Garden, Crystal Springs Rhododendron Garden or any plant store. Or eating tacos.

Favorite place in Oregon: Crater Lake.
