As the youth community organizer for SOUL Sisters Leadership Collective, Logan Meza plays an active role in mobilizing people while “providing safe, affirming and radical spaces in the efforts to achieve true liberation and equity for all folks of color.”

Meza uses they/them/their pronouns. They have co-organized the Florida March for Black Women and LadyFest Miami and facilitated workshops, front porch conversations, restorative circles and more.

After their mother’s death in December 2013, Meza said they had two options: sell narcotics to take the first bus out of Miami and disappear or attempt to find their purpose in honor of their mother. Meza chose the latter. Soon thereafter, they stumbled across SOUL Sisters, thus beginning their journey in the world of professional organizing.

“As a queer, trans-masculine, non-binary person, [I’m] very intentional and passionate about carving out spaces for other queer and trans/non-binary folks, especially in movements and spaces that tend to forget about trans/non-binary folks,” Meza said. “[I’m] also very committed to the health and wellness of the trans and non-binary community because in order to fill the cups of others, your cup must first become full.”

Meza says they are “extremely committed” to the world of grassroots organizing.

“[I] plan to be a part of this organizing world for many years to come,” Meza said.
