she/her/ella

Drea leads the strategic planning and long-term visioning of the organization. As a Peruvian American, Drea centers her indigenous Incan principles — Ayni (reciprocity), Llank’ay (work), Munay (love), and Yanay (knowledge) — as well as her core values of racial, gender, and economic justice in her movement-building efforts.

Having over a decade of coalition-building, grassroots organizing, and policy-making experience, Drea brings intentionality and hustle to her work at the ACLU of Oregon dismantling the patriarchy and white settler colonialism and supremacy. You will find her rejuvenating by eating tacos, reading, watering her plants, or singing to Prince with her daughter.
