Sidra Pierson


Sidra joined the ROP staff team in March of 2022. She first got involved in organizing in high school, participating in walkouts to protest sexual harassment and in support of Black Lives Matter, as well as starting a Fair Trade club to advocate for fair working conditions and sustainable livelihoods. At college in Vermont, she was deeply involved in climate justice organizing, joining a campaign to advocate for divestment from fossil fuels and organizing conversations about justice and inclusivity in campus spaces. She also worked with other students to prevent a white nationalist from speaking on campus and to create alternative, inclusive events. Sidra grew up in California and spent her childhood visiting family across Oregon. She is so excited to now be living in Deschutes County and working with human dignity groups across the state.
