Ric Tennenbaum

Iowa Safe Schools
Queer College Coordinator
Ric Tennenbaum (she/they) is the Queer Campus Coalition Coordinator at Iowa Safe Schools. She graduated from Grinnell College  with a bachelor’s in Gender, Women’s, and Sexuality Studies after spending a lot of time thinking about the creative and unrecognized ways we use emotions and feelings to build utopias for ourselves and our communities.

They love talking about activism strategies, daily acts of inspiration and resistance, and how forming close and unusual relationships with people helps build a stronger movement for liberation. She brings a long background in grassroots mental health organizing and developing their campus’ queer resource center, and is excited to bring Iowa college campuses into a more tightly woven network of alliance and support.
