Muindi Fanuel Muindi
he/they | Senior Program Manager
Employer: University of Washington, Office of Global Affairs
Moved Here from: Seattle on August 2023
Why did you move here?
My partner and I moved to Portland so that she could take up a promising job opportunity while also remaining close to family during a time of transitions.
What is one thing that you need/want from a community right now?
I moved to Portland knowing little about the city and its culture. The topics that interest activist, artist, and writer, I have learned that I need a certain kind of community in order to thrive, one attuned to the movements and rhythms Black and African diasporic life.
What kind of civic connection are you interested in making?
I am looking to connect with people engaged in the arts and literature community in Portland, as well as people engaged in activist work around issues of global mobility and ecology.
