Andre Menchavez, Engagement Intern

Andre Lawes Menchavez joined the League of Education Voters (LEV) in 2020. He is a queer, first-generation, Indigenous and Filipinx activist who utilizes journalism as a tool of activism to combat disparities and systems of oppression he sees in our world. Prior to working at LEV, Andre was a Lead Junior Editor for GLAAD, a national LGBTQIA+ non-profit media organization. He also is a columnist and Opinion Editor at The Daily, the University of Washington’s student newspaper. His column, Equity Inaction, is centered on covering improvements regarding equity, diversity, and inclusion at the University of Washington.

Andre was recently recognized as one of the Husky 100 by the University of Washington, a cohort of 100 students picked by the university for their prestigious contributions to the community. He is working towards his B.A. in Law, Societies, and Justice with a double minor in Diversity and English: Writing. He is also an avid coffee fan with a running list of Seattle’s coffee shops ranked, an active community organizer, a captain of the UW’s dance team, and hopefully a beacon of hope for young queer youth of color that they too can achieve what they dream of when people tell them they can’t.
