Arte Sana Board of Directors

Gabby Santos

Gabby Santos is the Director of LGBT Health Services for In Our Own Voices, a culturally specific organization based out of Albany, NY. She has worked with survivors of sexual violence in roles ranging from inmate trauma support group facilitator, to policy work on behalf of LGBT POC at the state coalition level. Racial justice work, transgender activism and criminal justice reform are at the heart of her passion. Gabby is committed to promoting the sexual health of LGBT POC and their communities in order to end sexual violence. She provides leadership to various projects, including Unity Through Diversity, a National LGBT POC Health Summit, and the Annual Black & Latino Gay Pride of the Capital District of NY.
Gabby is also a member of ALAS, the national Latina alliance against sexual violence. Her statement: "Sexual violence is both a tool of oppression, as well as a result of that same oppression. Latin@ communities are particularly affected due to a build up of racist policies, language imperialism and the national anti-immigration sentiment, all of which can lead to sexual assault and create additional barriers for survivors. The work of Arte Sana has provided over a decade of activism to deconstruct this harmful paradigm. I am grateful for the opportunity to support such a remarkable organization as a member of the Board of Directors.”
