My Story

I am a Black queer activist and Omaha native currently living in Chicago, with a specific focus on anti-racism work, decolonizing, and abolition. Portia was activated by the murder of Michael Brown, Jr. and the subsequent protests and riots in Ferguson, MO. As consciousness shifts towards reckoning with racism and white supremacy in the world,I am working to create spaces that are just and equitable as a way to build communities that are focused on healing and growing. I do this by curating and nurturing spaces to unlearn and decolonize behaviors that have upheld racism and white supremacy culture.

My priority is and will always be the uplifting of Black people, Indigenous people, and other people of the global majority. I am intentional in her work so that people working to be active anti-racists and social justice accomplices understand that by making the groups they advocate for their priority, the decolonization becomes a natural act and creates effective change.

"Liberation and activism work must be intersectional. If not, it is not intentional."

My Mission

I believe that change is possible. I believe that liberation is possible. And I firmly believe that for these things to be possible, healing is needed. Healing comes in many forms, and what I would love to work with you on is the part of healing that is decolonizing your thinking and become active anti-racists. By uncovering our biases and understanding where they come from, we have the opportunity to move through them and past them, and be part of the necessary healing that this world is craving.
