Community, Faith, & Justice Organizer
Ronnie Boyd is a community organizer who uses healing justice as her framework for engaging with constituencies. Over the years as an organizer, Ronnie has developed a diverse background in police and prison abolition and public education reform. Ronnie comes to housing by way of witnessing the amount of unhoused residents in both Chicago and the Bay Area. Ronnie is an avid science fiction and fantasy fan with a love for Afrofuturism, Black contemporary art, and womanist theology. She holds a B.A. and M.A. in Women’s Studies from San Diego State University where she studied how science fiction tv and film provide political commentary on gender, race, violence, and reproductive politics. Ronnie also organized faith leaders in the Unitarian Universalist tradition, activating congregants to direct action and advocating for anti-racist/anti-oppressive policies and structures. In her spare time, she enjoys watching wholesome comedic television shows to remind herself that good people can and do exist in both this reality and alternative ones.
