Damion Scott is the Lead Organizer at East Bay Housing Organizations.

Damion was born in San Francisco and raised in East Oakland. Damion attended Webster University, where he graduated with a degree in Speech Communication. During his time at Webster, Damion recognized how gentrification and widening economic inequality in Oakland were displacing long-time residents of his hometown. This compelled him to come back to the Bay Area and get involved in community organizing.

Upon moving back to the area, Damion was accepted into the Coro Fellowship in Public Affairs in San Francisco. As a Coro Fellow, he worked for the Drug Policy Alliance, The City of Oakland, the United Food and Commercial Workers Western States Council, PG&E, and the East Oakland Youth Development Center.

After graduating from Coro, Damion became a Political Organizer for the Alameda Labor Council and helped progress labor causes in the 2016 election. Before joining East Bay Housing Organizations, Damion worked as a Field Interviewer for Mathematica Policy Research focusing on research projects in the East Bay.
