StaffMeet our Team
Dia is the Operations Coordinator for TLC. They are a lifelong student of traditional birthwork and an artist who comes from a background in Reproductive and Healing Justice. They are humbled to have served in various roles doing grassroots operational work, community and transnational organizing, as well as political and reproductive health education.
Dia received their combined BA from Pitzer College in Africana Studies and Human Biology with an emphasis in the politics of health and science, and in their time there created meaningful ways to ground their studies on and off campus in the understanding that healing is personal, political, and collective. Their own healing journey has brought them to working with others towards reproductive liberation and Healing Justice for Black folks and people of color, especially those who are trans, queer, and gender nonconforming. Their experience creating and sustaining community-based networks of care with loved ones and BIPOC collectives who center holistic healing guides their values and their work.
Film photography, kitchen medicine, live music, cats, and sunshine are a few other things that bring them joy. They are excited to be a part of the team at TLC with other TGNC folks who inspire them, and to support the sustainability of the work!
