Jax (they/them) is a queer, Latinx silo-breaker, facilitator, and lover of transformative organizational development.

Jax is also a proud member of Mijente in Boston, a political home for Boston-area Latinxs who are pro-Black, pro-Queer, pro-mujer and working towards a decolonized world with dignity for all.  Most recently, Jax was co-director at Resist, a foundation that redistributes resources to frontline communities at the forefront of change.
