Leandra has been involved with organizations focusing on activism surrounding racism, sexism, and heterosexism. While at WU, she mentored at Chemawa Indian School and Mosaics. Her experiences with CAUSA raised her consciousness about immigration and how citizenship intersects with sexuality and gender.

Leandra hopes to work in Portland, her hometown.
