René A. Jàquez
Outreach and Communications Associate
René is a Dominican born, queer activist and artist working with Global Action Project. As a queer immigrant, René seeks to further the understanding and respect of Trans and Gender Non-Conforming folk who are at the intersections of gender, immigration and race. René’s journey with GAP began 5 years ago being a part of Supafriends, where they helped create films building on their previous theater experience. Later, René became an intern and a fellow. René is currently in the Americorps VISTA program and serving at Global Action Project through The New York Immigration Coalition. As a VISTA worker, René builds organizational capacity as an Outreach and Communications Associate. Throughout their time with GAP, René has conceptualized, edited, acted and produced several films, the most recent production being The C.O.R.E. Their chart consist of a Libra sun, with a Libra moon and a Sagittarius rising, and its equal parts Fire and Air. Whenever free time allows, René enjoys developing their artistic direction by producing original content which showcases their sharp and miscellaneously built artistic direction.
