Yvonne’s résumé reflects many different types of jobs, including social worker, environmental educator, fundraiser, and soon-to-be deputy director. All of Yvonne’s work experiences have been grounded in her most favorite thing: building relationships. During Yvonne’s time at the ACLU of Oregon, she has worked to deepen our racial equity work and ensure that as an organization we maintain focus on our values, commitment to equity and centering the voices and experiences of Black, Indigenous, and women of color in authentic ways. Yvonne finds moments of rest and rejuvenation when spending time with friends, baking sweet treats, and spending time with her partner and her small grumpy dog, Angel.
