Melody Zhang

Melody (she/her) joined staff in July 2021 and works as our Homes for All Organizer, where she works to grow grassroots tenant leadership, strengthen tenant-led associations and unions and build radical translocal power through organizing, political education, and direct action with long-term DC residents. Originally from metro-Detroit, Michigan, she has a background in environmental and food justice work in both DC and her home state. Inspired by the life-work of Grace Lee Boggs, she is committed to Black and Asian liberation and solidarity in both theory and practice. Her other loves of labor include cooking, singing, reading/writing, building community at her church and group house, and yoga practice - all of which nourish her spiritually for the work ahead.
