Chairperson: Lisa Fay
Right 2 Survive
Lisa began her early years by helping people with disabilities. Her compassion and skills took her into the Nursing field for more than 25 years. She is a mother and a grandmother, author, artist, educator and activist. But she is not limited to these many talents.
Since moving to Oregon, Lisa has become a champion in the fight against disparity. She challenges the State and Local Governments, Business Improvement Districts and the tactics they use to criminalize the most marginalized. Working with the knowledge and desire to educate against injustices, she works with Right 2 Survive, as its Chairperson to educate the Houseless about their Civil, Constitutional and Human Rights.
Lisa’s involvement with Right 2 Survive has evolved into facilitation, trainings, coordination of events, media, consulting and planning sessions as well as assisting to develop long term strategies for the progression of the organization.
Lisa has traveled around the country networking with grassroot houseless organizations to create safe spaces like Right 2 Dream Too. She is a Co founder and former board member for Right 2 Dream,Too and has a working relationship with many of the people who have lived there.
Lisa helps in the content and production of both Right 2 Survive Television and Right 2 Survive Radio. A one hour, monthly show giving voice to the unhoused community. Both R2S shows are showcases for the systemic downfall of communities across the nation by corporate greed, government policies, the lack of safety nets and environmental hazards while highlighting Activist involved in social change.
