Deyanira Ibarra (she/they)
Program Administration Coordinator
Both analytical and creative, Deyanira Sencion Ibarra joins URGE committed to taking direct action towards a liberated world by advocating for Reproductive Justice. Deyanira earned degrees from Wellesley College and the University of Southern California in Women’s and Gender Studies and Narrative Medicine respectively. During this time Deyanira worked on projects including: writing a guidebook for becoming a sanctuary hospital, collaborating with youth of color to host pop-up clinics. Being formally introduced to interlocking forms of oppressions in Black feminist literature was instrumental in understanding individual experiences as part of larger schemes in society, particularly those that intersect with reproductive health. Deyanira’s family and personal history serves as a launching point for political engagement and education. They bring experience as a youth organizer and strongly believes in the capacity of trans and gender diverse youth of color to enact a more just society. Outside of URGE, Deyanira enjoys writing poetry, days at the beach, and cooking for friends.
