Maryse (they/them) is a white, Jewish, and trans facilitator, fundraiser, and radical social worker. They have been active in movements for healing justice, sex worker organizing, racial justice, economic justice, and LGBTQI+ liberation for over twenty-five years. In 2018, Maryse co-organized the Sex Worker Giving Circle (SWGC), the first sex worker-led fund housed at a U.S. foundation, and joined Third Wave’s staff in 2019 to continue that work. Today, they focus on fundraising for Third Wave’s Spotlight Funds: the SWGC, the Accountable Futures Fund, and the Disability Frontlines Fund. Raised in NYC, Maryse now lives on Mahican land in the Northern Catskills region of New York with their partner and dog, along with their many non-human neighbors in the beech-maple forest.
