Bré Rivera lives her life boldly and unapologetically advocates for issues most impacting the lives of Black trans people. She is the Founder and Program Fellow of the Black Trans Fund, an incubated fund of the Groundswell Fund that is rooted in her experience as a former executive director of an under-resourced grassroots organization, and her commitment to supporting abundance within Black trans movements.
Before joining the Groundswell Fund team, Bré worked as a research assistant at the University of Michigan School of Public Health, and as an HIV intervention specialist at Wayne State University School of Medicine and Detroit Medical Center.
Bré lives in New Mexico with her partner and spends her free time hiking in the Sandia mountains. She is an active board member of Positive Women’s Network-USA, the Transgender Resource Center of New Mexico, Third Wave Fund, and Grantmakers for Girls of Color.
