Through navigating bullying and discrimination, Siche Green-Mitchell learned to tackle challenges with chutzpah and authenticity. While completing a bachelors degree at the University of Oregon in womens and gender studies, Siche competed as an All-American athlete, organized to end sexual violence and increase access to education for students of color and the LGBTQ community. Siches initial work in advocacy for adjudicated youth, homeless youth and families in crisis inspired him to broaden his scope of influence and pursue systemic change through education. As a dedicated leader, Siche has worked in K-12 and undergraduate education to increase retention and graduation rates for historically underserved populations. Through his work, he aims to increase equity and access to education for communities of color, undocumented students, LGBTQ populations and students with disabilities.
