Revrend Deb Avery has made a commitment to intersectionality in the work of seeking justice has grown deeper and stronger as she has worked in Presbyterian congregations and in the community.

Although Deb was ordained in 2001, her sense of justice for LGBTQ people was shaped in San Francisco during the onset of the AIDS Crisis in the 1980s. Later, she lived in Japan on a work permit, then married into a family of Peruvian immigrants, then later moving to Mexico City which sharpened her interest and concern not only for immigrant rights but also for those who live in terrible poverty and who suffer under the effects of white supremacy. She is the co-founder of two grassroots organizations in Yonkers and Oakland which focus on racial equity and is currently launching a new ministry - Justice House - which is centered in theological reflection and spiritual strengthening in and around justice activism.

Whether serving in a redlined community in Yonkers or providing support for Native Americans in Phoenix, or on the streets of Oakland, Debra has chosen to work in the intersections where multiple oppressions are often felt the strongest.
