Staff Bio: Wayne Rocque
In my 10 years of education and work experience, I have been committed to community centered service and public policy. I am originally a Washingtonian and a graduate of Western Washington University.
My work experience has included policy proposals, voter participation, grassroots organizing and research in cities across the country, including Portland, Seattle, Atlanta, Oakland, Berkeley and the District of Columbia. I have analyzed pertinent state and federal legislation and regulations and developed recommendations for advocacy groups and other stakeholders. Currently, my goal is to work toward a movement where freedom, dignity and equality leaves no one behind.
I have active knowledge working in immigrant rights, economic justice, Indigenous rights, progressive climate policy, LGBTQ rights, communities of color, rural communities, seniors and People with Disabilities. Specialties: nonprofits, public policy, advocacy, fundraising and development, strategic planning, political campaigns, grassroots organizing, digital organizing and lobbying.
When I am not working, I am usually painting, reading or eating. History, art and singing loudly in my car are other major interests of mine.
