Alex Mae

She/Her/He/Him

Born and raised in Santa Clara, California Alex has lived in Utah since 2011. It has been a culture shock that hasn’t stopped shaking since. An artist focusing on the emotional release and healing that creating provides; with writing as an additional cathartic outlet. More than anything Alex would love for creative opportunities to be accessible to anyone and everyone who wishes to create in whatever capacity spoke to them. It’s a great way to make mistakes and find your voice. Alex is an ardent advocate—as a fellow survivor—for domestic and sexual assault survivors. 

 

Alex's passion is learning about, and moving towards restorative and transformative models of justice and community. Mainly, her role in whiteness. His focus is on education with a belief that we can hold space for adults to learn and grow, and that the deep liberation work starts with teaching ourselves, and then our children, a healthier path for self actualization and belonging within our communities.

 

Action and education is a priority in his work and home. She stumbles and fails frequently which leads to a great amount of shutting up, listening, and apologizing which is a lesson most white folks can use practice with.

 

His greatest joy comes from motherhood leading her to pursue accessible support for parents and their children. Proudly queer and transgender, Alex hopes to assist in creating more brave spaces.
