JR Lilly

Human Solutions Board Member

East Portland Action Plan Advocate

Something that inspires me about the work Human Solutions does is how they are able to carry out some meaningful work in a way where justice is not only in the outcome but in the process as well.

JR joined the Human Solutions board because he desires to continue weaving the basket of community by connecting those with the ability to help with meaningful impacts within our city. As part of a new generation that straddles a cultural chasm, JR leads efforts to further the conversation around defining the role of his generation for both Indigenous and non-Indigenous communities. Outside of work, JR enjoys some good medicine with community through ceremony and celebration.

Favorite place in Oregon: Any Portland city park.
