Dameun Strange is an artist, activist, and organizer. Born and raised in Washington, DC, he got his start in high school advocating for the homeless, neighborhood safety and statehood. Dameun has worked locally for such organizations as ACORN, MN UNITED and Grassroots Solutions to organize around voting rights, arts advocacy, LGBTQ rights and dismantling racism.
Dameun is driven by two desires. As an artist, he is driven to create, to innovate, to build something meaningful and that gives people pause. He has a desire to reach deep within himself and pull out something raw and honest. As an organizer, Dameun is driven to bring people together, to find commonalities between communities, to build bridges—to find the soul of the community and illuminate it, building on assets for a strong future.
