Eva (they/them) supports CivicMakers’ public outreach, engagement, community-based research, and bilingual facilitation. They hold a BA in Sociology from the Autonomous University of Barcelona, and are a native speaker in English, Spanish, as well as fluent in Portuguese and French, and intermediate in Italian.
After spending several years working in arts and education, such as autobiographical story-telling with Latinx newcomers in San Francisco, toddler art, and youth murals, Eva focused their work on supporting San Francisco’s most vulnerable population: unhoused, marginally housed, and survivors of sexual assault. Eva learned anti-oppression framework, trauma informed lens, harm reduction practice, DEI, and de-escalation skills through their work in San Francisco at Hospitality House, Mission Neighborhood Resource Center, Mission SRO Collaborative, the Mission’s first Navigation Center, the Youth Program of the LGBT Center, and San Francisco Women Against Rape. As Director of Community Initiatives at Clarion Alley Mural Project, they led an initiative of stakeholder engagement and partnership building, resulting in increased safety and a certificate of honor by the Supervisors Office for the fight against transphobia.
Eva brings a unique lens with their multi-cultural background, trauma-informed work, and experience providing professional development training in Communication, Gender Diversity Equity & Inclusion and Conflict De-escalation. They are exceptionally talented at ensuring that anyone who speaks with them feels respected and has a seat at the table.
In their free time, they bring music and drag art to venues in San Francisco and beyond, including Freight and Salvage and Stern Grove.
