As an indigenous member of the LGBTQ+ community, Jade is passionate about working for the livelihood of marginalized peoples. Born and raised in Odanah, Wisconsin, Jade has directly experienced the generational hardships of Northern Wisconsinites and struggling reservations. Due to consistent, near unavoidable exposure to the oppressive environment in the North, Jade is committed to fighting for the success of every underprivileged and underrepresented community in Wisconsin.
The goal is to create a better environment in the Northwoods for every person to grow safety, stability, and liberty in their lives by helping to build supportive infrastructure in lieu of the oppressive systems.
For years, Jade has been active in the fight for LGBTQ+ rights, environmental protection, racial and gender equality, and combatting economic injustice. All of these issues weigh heavily not only on Jade’s family and community – but many communities across our great state. Being given the opportunity to reach out across Wisconsin and dive into this work, Progress North was the next step in Jade’s journey to create lasting positive change for all Wisconsinites.
