Orion Camero

As a queer visual storytelling educator, anticapitalist, coalition-builder and community organizer, Orion [they/him/hers] works at the nexus of social, ecological, and economic crisis to enable holistic perspectives in advancing transcendent justice. They previously have been a delegate to the UN Climate Conferences, COP21 in Paris, COP22 in Marrakech, and COP23 in Germany before co-leading the COP25 delegation in Madrid. As a Filipinx genderqueer with roots in decolonial lineage, they honor the stories of their ancestors from the Central Valley farmworkers’ movements to indigenous resistance against Spanish empire in their homeland. Orion believes that what nurtures the heart of collective liberation are the ingredients of inter-identity solidarity, cross-cultural connection and exponential collaboration.
