Looking for my next
to make a change.
The equitable way.
This is me.
My name is Jamila Aurora Dozier. I am a Queer, bilingual Afro-Latina originally from the San Francisco Bay Area, currently based in Portland, OR. I have extensive experience in equity work, strategic planning, education, youth and community engagement, social media, and web design.
In the Portland community, I serve on the Human Rights Commission and volunteer my time as a crisis line sexual violence advocate at Call to Safety. As a commissioner, I serve as an advisory board to the City Commissioners and Mayor Ted Wheeler on a variety of human rights issues including houselessness, policing, immigration, and discrimination based on race, gender, sexuality, and ability.
In all the work I do as an educator, Human Rights Commissioner, and volunteer advocate, I utilize targeted universalism, centering populations who are most marginalized and vulnerable when making decisions and providing support to individuals.
As a low-income, first-generation college and graduate student, I center my work on creating equitable access to education, food, and housing. I have facilitated a variety of trainings around implicit bias, conflict, trauma and trauma-informed interviewing, and sexual assault prevention, response, and advocacy.

A bit about my work.
I'm a firm believer and practitioner of equity and social justice. I work with clients to infuse equity in all processes from hiring to business expansion. I utilize targeted universalism in everything I do - centering individuals with marginalized identities to effect the most change within communities. I believe that every person should have equitable access to healthy food, housing, healthcare, and education regardless of race, skin color, age, ability, sexual orientation, or gender.
