Alex Free (she/they) is an activist, advocate, and writer. Their work focuses on supporting fellow trauma survivors as well as writing and speaking on topics spanning intersectionality, disrupting rape culture, mental health, and dismantling white supremacy. They are a creator, storyteller, leader, and trauma-informed facilitator in racial/social justice and healing spaces.
Alex is also a survivor of domestic violence, rape + sexual assault, and child abuse. They believe that survivors are powerful and magical and most importantly that fields and programs that are created for survivors should be survivor-led, because our experiences and our voices matter. They believe it is critical that the public health field becomes trauma-informed and is eager to create change in this area in order for survivors to feel safe, seen, and supported — always.
