My name is Tonei Glavinic, and I work as a program coordinator and grant administrator for the Dangerous Speech Project. I also work on various projects with the Civic Education Project at Northwestern University’s Center for Talent Development and the the Center for Economic Progress, manage and contribute to the Alaska Commons, and serve as Communications Coordinator for the National Advisory Council of the Gay, Lesbian & Straight Education Network (GLSEN).
I recently moved to Oakland, California, and I’m looking for opportunities with nonprofit organizations and higher education institutions in the Bay Area. My areas of focus include social justice education and service learning, civil rights advocacy with a focus on LGBT issues, and college access and affordability.
I completed a Master of Arts in Social Justice and Community Development at Loyola University Chicago in May 2014. Prior to that, I graduated from American University in 2012 with a Bachelor of Arts in Political Science and Women's, Gender & Sexuality Studies, a minor in Justice, and a certificate in Women, Policy and Political Leadership from the Women and Politics Institute. My senior honors capstone was the TONI Project, an online resource for transgender people to share, discover and transform policies and practices at universities across the country. TONI is now being integrated with resources maintained by the Consortium of Higher Education LGBT Resource Professionals.
