Arsidez works at TMC as the Training Program Manager based in Tutelo and Keyauwee Territory (North Carolina). In 2022, Arsidez joined the TMC team as a Movement Tech Strategist with a dedication to meaningful knowledge sharing and finding practical solutions for members. He now guides the Technology Constellation's engagement in training spaces, manages The Movement Training Calendar (MTC) resource, and is building out the new Cooperative Training Coalition. Arsidez came to TMC after spending over 6 years organizing across the country on a wide variety of progressive issues, including climate justice, racial justice, police abolition, LGBTQ+ rights, voting rights, and educator causes. In 2020, Arsidez was chosen as a member of President Biden’s North Carolina LGBTQ Leadership Council; after he sat as the Vice President of the LGBTQ+ Democrats of NC for consecutive terms. Arsidez began his official professional organizing career in 2016 as a HFA Campus Organizer, in rural Eastern NC, after graduating from Mars Hill University with his degree in Political Science. In his free time, Arsidez does stay up to date with all things Star Wars, tending to his vibrant plants and playing with his fur babies (two beautiful cats). You cannot separate Arsidez from the outdoors; he and his boyfriend take day trips to hike the beautiful Pilot Mountain and Hanging Rock in their backyard. Ask him about training/knowledge sharing best practices, innovative ways to engage young folx, AI/LLMs and The Movement Cooperative.
