This week, we're excited to welcome Hollis Dale to staff as our new Administrative Coordinator!
Originally from the Southeast of the United States (Georgia and North Carolina), Hollis has lived in the San Francisco Bay Area for the past seven years until moving to Central Vermont 2 months ago.
In SF, Hollis was involved in social and economic justice work around issues ranging from transgender healthcare advocacy and transgender prisoner support to divestment from migrant detention and anti-gentrification work. He also was an active organizer during graduate school where he was part of a successful campaign for all-gender restrooms on campus.
Hollis started doing office coordination for a ballet company in college and went on to oversee grants administration and data management for the Gay and Lesbian Medical Association. For the past few years, Hollis has been the Operations Director for an acupuncture studio and a private chef.
In his free time, Hollis likes to sing protest songs and pop music, geek out on critical theory and science fiction, cook one pot wonders, and acclimate to winter by learning to knit and cross country ski.
Come stop by the Burlington office and say hello!
