Stacey Rice

Stacey Rice has made an important and lasting impact on Portland in 6 years in the city. Stacey is a speaker and trainer on trans policies for businesses, government organizations. In 5 years with the Q Center, the largest LGBTQ2SIA+ community center in the Pacific Northwest, Stacey made the organization more inclusive and equitable, while shoring up the financial aspects to ensure a solid foundation for the center. She was recognized by the Gay and Lesbian Archives of the Pacific Northwest as a Queer Hero in 2016 for her work at Q Center and in the greater Portland community. She now works for the City Club of Portland and organization dedicated to community service, public affairs and leadership development.

And this quote of hers could have been said by myself: "In her spare time, you will find Stacey out wandering the backroads of the Pacific NW, hiking to her favorite spots in the Gorge and on the Coast, maybe sitting under a big Ponderosa Pine tree somewhere in the high desert, or heading out to Willamette Valley wine country."
