Akoth Ombaka
Operations Director

Akoth’s professional journey started off in community organizing. They were a part of the canvassing team organizing around driver’s license access for immigrants as well as the decriminalization of marijuana for Black and brown communities in Oregon. Akoth brings operations experience from a myriad of nonprofits and is always looking to learn more about how systemic oppression shows up in nonprofit spaces and subsequently how to minimize and eventually eradicate harm in social justice movements. Akoth recharges by spending time composing music, reading, trying out new cuisine, and dancing to trap and reggaeton.
