Welcoming new staff

The foundation has been delighted to be joined by Kandra Rivers in the role of communications coordinator. Kandra comes to the foundation from years of experience working with Alternatives in Action, a youth organization based in Oakland. There, among many other projects, she oversaw the creation of a new youth film festival called Project YouthView, that recently celebrated its 10-year anniversary of showcasing the power of youth through film. She has recently moved back to the Bay Area, after a brief hiatus in Texas, where she worked on the launch of the first LGBTQ youth organization in San Antonio, Texas.

As communications coordinator, Kandra has lead responsibility for all of Horizons’ communications, including our new website. “I’m thrilled to be working on so many exciting new projects at Horizons Foundation, and to be supporting the larger work of the LGBT movement.”
