Brenda Herrera Moreno

Director of DEIJ Initiatives

Strategist | Creator | Disruptor

Brenda (she/ella) was raised internationally – born in Mexico City, partially raised in India, attended middle school in South Carolina, high school in Wales, and college in Massachusetts. After Hampshire College, Brenda experienced diverse roles in advocacy as a youth program coordinator at a refugee resettlement organization, later as a bilingual counselor for survivors and victims of intimate partner violence, and finally as a peer recovery coach. As an anti-oppression practitioner, Brenda supports Multiplier’s community members in their connection to the work, community, and movement of anti-oppression. Her expertise is to go beyond the basics and facilitate transformative spaces for all to deepen their journey of turning silence into language and action.

To reground and reconnect with herself, Brenda dedicates herself to pottery, gardening and connecting with her communities. Brenda is reconnecting with her indigenous roots and is consistently active in decolonizing her mind, body and spirit. There’s nothing more nourishing for her than to sit still underneath the sun with nothing else to do than just to be.
