Interviewer / Recruiter
Luz-Fernanda Venegas is excited to join the Center of Excellence specifically with Triumph-expanding access to healthcare, resources and support for trans folk in Oakland. Her interest in healthcare started as an educator during her collegiate years at the University of California Berkeley and was cultivated while working with the Rainbow Community Center of Contra Costa County- helping expand visibility and access to resources to the local LGBTQQIA+ communities. Her experience as an educator, facilitator, and community organizer have taught and informed her approach and processes. Luz- Fernanda believes in the power of restorative justice, visibility, and representation as tools for mobilization and community building.
