Lamarra Haynes joined The Street Trust this month. The Portland-area regional government, Metro, is expected to place a transportation measure on the November 2020 ballot. Lamarra will provide community members with information about the measure and how it will address transportation choices, especially for people of color and people with low incomes.
Lamarra Haynes (she, her, hers) emigrated to Portland from Kingston, Jamaica at the age of seven. She began doing community organizing and outreach work during her junior year of college and is excited to further improve those skills in her role at the Street Trust. Outside of work she enjoys spending time with her family and friends, reading, learning, and making things.
We are excited to have Lamarra on The Street Trust team!
