Appointee statement of interest

My career is especially focused on racial equity. I have spent the last 15 years working on the intersection of racial equity and housing. From working on the racial equity strategy guide the City of Portland adopted to oversight of supportive housing for eight years, my work has been community focused. I continually work to explore opposing viewpoints and accept new information to refine my perspective. Throughout my time of service on PHAC, I have brought my perspective on practices, policies, and investments in housing to be focused on justice and restoration of decades of racial exclusion and harm. I appreciate being afforded the opportunity to ensure community investments and resources support affordable housing, housing stability, and inclusive development. I am excited to continue to participate on PHAC to have an impact on the housing crisis that most greatly impacts BIPOC in the city and to improve quality of life in the city I love.
