Jess Patrick began their awareness of harm reduction and social disparities in the art and music community in Arizona. Since then, she has dedicated her adult life to easing the suffering that oppressive systems cause while working towards dismantling those systems. Through local politics, art, music, grass roots efforts, and fundraising for the best causes in Arizona, they have been able to support radical changes in their community. As a development professional, Jess is excited to invite other folks to join in the work through support by giving financially, by giving time, or by giving goods and services. When not railing against the systemic oppression you can find her making zines or other art, at a local music show or at home hanging out with her wife, 2 dogs and 2 cats.
