Lady Anderson
Director of Collective Capacity Building

Lady Anderson is a Black, queer, trans leader who brings 14 years of experience in advocacy and community engagement. In the course of Lady’s service as a legal, youth, medical, and sexual assault/domestic violence advocate, she has learned from survivors that economic stability is most often the key factor to establishing and maintaining self-determination, leading to greater overall wellbeing for individuals as well as their communities. With a background in public health, policy development, and a tenacious commitment to racial, gender, and health equity, Lady aims to apply her knowledge of progressive, community-centered public health structures and survivor-centered advocacy to SJF’s programming.

Lady delights in birdwatching, a good cheese plate, reflecting on the evolution of life through geological time scale, and the many talents of Nicki Minaj, Megan Thee Stallion, and Beyoncé Giselle Knowles-Carter. Outside of work, you can find her supporting local markets and dreaming about New York bagels.
