As a community organizer, Zachary Pullin serves through a commitment to social justice, equity, and intersectionality. Zachary has lead workshops and spoken about community building from Vanderbilt University, Mills College, and Portland State University to the 2014 King County Access Summit. Currently, he is the Communications Project Lead with SEIU Healthcare NW Training Partnership focusing on expanding inclusive educational opportunities for the more than 45,000 home care aides in Washington State. An enrolled member of the Chippewa Cree tribe, and a returned Peace Corps volunteer, he finds passion in the intersectionality of service, illuminating how our myriad identities weave together, and opening up more space for complex conversations such as the environment, the criminal justice system, and race to name a few. He was a Pomegranate Center for Community Development Fellow, the current Vice President of the Capitol Hill Community Council, PR Director for the Gender Justice League, a member of the Northwest Two Spirit Society, a member of the Native American Advisory Council with the SPD, and a facilitator at Gay City Health Project. In his spare time, he enjoys freelance writing for local and national publications, such as the Advocate, Native Peoples Magazine, Indian Country Today, and Seattle Gay News.
