Hi, I am Danni.
I’m a trans activist
and policy wonk.

I work as the Executive Director
of Gender Justice League

I am a community based activist & organizer who is passionate about civil rights, health care access, and addressing homelessness. I am dedicated policy and political wonk working across progressive movements for social change. In my spare time I like to bike and am an avid rock climber.

I have worked for 10 years as a social worker, mental health provider, and manager for various organizations.

I founded Gender Justice League, was the National Program Director for GSA Network, Policy Director at Basic Rights Oregon, and was the Trans Health Program Director at Verbena.

I have lectured at over 200 universities, companies, organizations, and schools on issues impacting LGBTQ communities.

I have worked on a number of ballot measure campaigns for the LGBTQ community from non-discrimination measures, to same-sex marriage, to successfully defeating the country’s first anti-transgender ballot measure.


I’m looking to learn new technology. My interests are in web development, databases, & mobile apps.


I am ready to move to your company’s city if needed.


I have been a team leader for 2 years at the last position and am looking for a similar position.
