As a consultant, most of Trina’s work is on behalf of clients, and therefore proprietary. But in her free time, Trina volunteers for the Northwest Abortion Access Fund, formerly known as The CAIR Project. She's used her communications skills to advance NWAAF's mission of funding abortion and breaking down barriers to abortion access for people in the Northwest, and is proud to share the following work samples:
Op-ed: The Seattle Times, Time to restore abortion funding, helping low-income women
Op-ed: Rewire, 1,000 miles and too many barriers to count: One woman’s abortion trip
Media appearance: Melissa Harris-Perry, MSNBC, The impact of abortion funds
