Diversity and Inclusion Program Educator
Geneva is the Diversity and Inclusion Program Educator at Lambda Legal, the oldest and largest national legal organization, whose mission is to achieve full recognition of the civil rights of lesbians, gay men, bisexuals, transgender people and those living with HIV.
Geneva focuses her efforts on reaching typically under-represented portions of the population who may benefit from Lambda Legal’s impact litigation, public policy work and education, but maybe otherwise unaware of its mission or efforts.
Prior to Lambda Legal, Geneva worked at CAMBA, a non-profit in Brooklyn, NY, where she helped develop Project ALY (Accept LGBT Youth), a family acceptance project and HIV-prevention program. During her work there, she engaged families and community members, educating them on how “a little bit of acceptance” can make a huge impact in a child’s life.
She has over eleven years of experience in community health, HIV prevention and education, social marketing development and community planning and organizing. She served as co-chair for the Steering Committee as well as the Events Planning and Promotion sub-committees for the New York City Department of Health and Mental Hygiene campaign, “Brooklyn Knows,” a Brooklyn-wide HIV testing initiative.
Geneva holds a Bachelor’s degree in Social Science from The College of New Rochelle, and when she isn’t out educating the public you can find her performing reggae and R&B songs all over the city with her band, or just enjoying all that Brooklyn has to offer with her son Elian and her partner, Tamarra.
