This Valentine’s Day, we’re appreciating the staff members who work daily to advance Astraea’s mission to resource frontline LGBTQI activists in the U.S. and around the world.
In recent months, we’ve been thrilled to welcome three new staff members. We’re delighted to welcome Loé Petit to the Intersex Human Rights Fund as a Program Associate, where they’ll work closely with our IHRF Program Officer, the Intersex Fund Advisory Board, and intersex leaders in regions around the world to further resource and garner support for multi-racial, intersectional and global intersex movement-building. Biola Odunewu brings her strong organizational skill, good humor and Nigerian herbal tea apothecary prowess to our team as Executive Assistant. Lastly, Hanna Israel’s West Coast savvy and diligence bolsters our fundraising efforts as Development Associate for Institutional Giving.
Our staff, both new and old, continue to drive and shape Astraea’s work as we resist and build collective power and liberation among LGBTQI movements. We’re grateful for all they do!
With deep solidarity and power,
The Astraea Team
