Lynx M'Chea (he/him)
Lynx M’Chea (pronounced lee-inks UM-cha-ay) (he/him pronouns) is the Deputy Communications Director and a 26 year-old autistic Black trans man from Detroit, MI who’s currently living in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.
Lynx has been supporting nonprofits and grassroots movements in their digital communications for eight years in the issue areas such as LGBTQ+ rights, economic justice, public policy, the Movement for Black Lives and food justice. Lynx started in communications as a freelance writer, graphic design & front-end web developer. He became a community organizer when he was 13 years old when he organized a city-wide campaign save the only youth center in his neighborhood (which is still around today!).
Using a story-based, “pass the mic” communications strategy, Lynx has developed, managed and revamped the communications and digital spaces for organizations such as the Black Lives Matter Global Network, Transgender Law Center, Economic Justice Alliance of Michigan and the Hurston Wright Foundation.
When Lynx isn’t working, he enjoys reading speculative fiction, learning about turtles (his favorite animal) and making music.
