Michelle Wright

Community Partnerships Coordinator
Oakland Rising
Michelle Wright is a community organizer, and rabble-rouser. She was forced from the sidelines into battle after the passage of Prop 8 , the National Equality March and Meet in the Middle, a statewide call to action for LGBT activists in 2008. These landmark events ignited a passion for equality within her that fueled her decision to come out to family and friends. Additionally, she intermittently trains across the country on Public Narrative with the New Organizing Institute. She is proud to call Oakland home.
