A Little Bit About Trina Olson, Executive Director of PFund Foundation

Trina stepped into her role at PFund Foundation in December of 2014. With over a decade spent working on progressive ballot measure and legislative campaigns, Trina brings a wealth of fundraising, messaging and management expertise.

A seasoned strategist, leader, activist and organizer Trina comes to her role as Executive Director at PFund from Immigration Equality where she served as both Deputy Executive Director and Interim Executive Director. There Trina was part of lobbying efforts with the White House, ICE and Congress as well as charged with supporting the team of attorneys providing free legal services to low-income LGBTQ asylum seekers, detainees and binational couples. Prior to that, Trina advocated for trans-inclusive non-discrimination, marriage equality, adoption policy and health care access at The National Gay and Lesbian Task Force, Equality California, Family Equality Council and Washington Citizen Action.

Trina is particularly interested in the ways that local, regional, national and international LGBTQ movement strategies can intersect. Trina lives in Minneapolis with her wife, EJ, and loves to spend her free time traveling with family and friends.
