9 a.m. Keynote Speaker: Iden Campbell, Racial Justice and Trans Justice Program Director for Basic Rights Oregon

Firstenburg Student Commons

Campbell is a native New Yorker by way of Washington, D.C. transplant who now calls Portland home. Campbell has been an activist for most of his career, first as an advocate for those with intellectual/developmental disabilities, and then moving to suicide prevention and mental health activism. Campbell decided to speak out against transgender violence in 2011 when his intern LaShay McClean was murdered in Washington, D.C. Campbell knew that he could no longer live under the radar as a black transgender man and not speak out against the violence surrounding black trans women. With that passion, Campbell became a national speaker around social justice for transgender people in general, ensuring that the health care needs of trans people were heard at the myriad of tables.
