CHELSEA TRILLO

Program Coordinator

Chelsea Miraflor Trillo descends from Mindanao of the so-called philippine islands and has been a guest on Wiyot homelands since 2016. For nearly a decade, they have been dedicated to addressing gender and sexual violence through crisis support, program coordination, and community organizing. They received a bachelor’s degree in gender studies with an emphasis on state violence, and received a master’s degree in social work with an emphasis on #MMIW and violence against Mother Earth. Philosophically, they are guided by movements of mutual aid, consent culture, and land back. As an admirer of Sovereign Bodies Institute since its inception, they feel especially honored to serve as Program Coordinator and co-build systems of care alongside comrades.
