Mercedes White Calf
Lobbying since: 2021
Mercedes White Calf (Oglala Sioux) serves as the Southwest Washington Advocacy Coordinator with the Native American Youth and Family Center (NAYA). Her work centers Washington’s most vulnerable communities through impacting change at the legislative and political levels. Mercedes holds a bachelor’s degree from the University of Oregon but accredits her working-knowledge, relevant-experience, and impact, to bring about change in the political process. Three years ago, Mercedes lived in a tent, under bridges, and on any land where she was not forcefully removed. She used public restrooms to bathe, and hospitals and soup lines to eat. She suffered from untreated mental illness, domestic violence, and substance abuse. Born from a long line of strong Native women, Mercedes has worked to create avenues and opportunities for herself while overcoming the many barriers and challenges she has faced. Her passion is rooted in ending trauma, homelessness, and oppression. Mercedes serves on the Board of Directors at The Miracles Club and believes our communities are powerful, creative, and can create change for seven-generations to come.
