Shiloh Emelein is a trans, non-binary creature raised in the Chochenyo Ohlone Territory- Oakland, California. They are an anti-war veteran that uses their microphone as a veteran to speak out against the harm caused by US imperialism and militarism, both abroad and stateside. Shiloh views their current work in early childhood and elementary education as a loving way to shape the future they wish to see; a future that is radically inclusive, radically soft, and radically healing. Being a safe place for queer and trans youth within the often oppressive school system is deeply important and an honor Shiloh holds dear.
