they/them

Paige Coe (they/them) is the Education and Training Coordinator for San Ysidro Health's HIV Department where they coordinate internal and external training opportunities related to capacity development projects. Paige is also the Community Relations Chair for the San Diego Black LGBTQ Coalition and sits on the Black LGBTQ+ Community Advisory Committee (BLCAC) at the San Diego LGBT Center. They first entered these organizations as a Black-multiracial trans community member seeking spaces that felt affirming of their entire identity. Their role at the Coalition involves connecting to community members, organizing events, and developing community partnerships. Part of this work requires direct training to assure that community partners have tools to create safer spaces for the Black LGBTQ+ community. They aim to utilize their position and lens to advocate for the removal of barriers keeping darker Black folks and other LGBTQ+ community members out of decision-making roles in spaces that serve them. Their identity and values guide them to be dedicated to prison abolition, harm reduction, and other movements that center people, care, and deconstruction over profit, punishment, and tradition. Paige is originally from Anishinaabe, Ho-Chunk, Menominee, Oneida, and Mohican territory (Milwaukee, WI)
