About Dax Murray:
I have previously done work in the reproductive health, rights, and justice communities. I've done organizing, meeting planning, fundraising and development, peer education, outreach and recruitment, sex ed, peer education, and policy, specifically in the reproductive rights and abortion care fields. I spent several years as a social worker helping low-income people seeking abortion care find abortion providers in their area, and local abortion funds to help them pay for the procedure.
I attended Allegheny College in Meadville, Pennsylvania, receiving a BA in Political Science (focus area: constitutional law and women in politics), with a minor in Creative Writing (emphasis on women's writing and poetry). I've taken courses in international law at Gannon University, and completed American Universities Washington Semester Program (International Law and Organizations).
I write about the tech industry, intersectional feminism, and book reviews. My side passion is getting Brigid Project off the ground, what will soon be a non-profit focused on helping people navigate stigmatized services. In my spare time, I enjoy writing science fiction and fantasy. You can find some of my fiction writings on my Amazon Authors Page
I live and work in the DC Metro area with my three cats. I've backpacked across Ireland, and visited Geneva, Brussels, Trier, Berlin, Strasbourg, The Hague, and Luxembourg, with minor pit stops at Heathrow Terminal 5. (Do not make pit stops in Heathrow Terminal 5).
