Tahirah Green


Program Coordinator, Amplify Fund

Interdisciplinary to their core, Tahirah wears many hats as a Program Coordinator for NFG's Amplify Fund: event planner, grants manager, and grantee liaison, to name a few. Tahirah is committed to liberation through a Black, queer, feminist lens, and is grateful to use their eldest-child-honed project management prowess to advance Amplify’s work. They've seen firsthand how pivotal it is to move resources and build power with BIPOC, low-income, and other under-resourced communities.

Tahirah holds a master’s degree in Development Studies from the Graduate Institute of International and Development Studies (IHEID), as well as a B.A. in Creative Writing and a B.S. in International Relations and Politics from Carnegie Mellon University. They received invaluable political education from Black Youth Project 100, Black Organizing for Leadership and Dignity, Collective Action for Safe Spaces, and countless other organizers, healers, artists, and community members in the United States and internationally.

Typical of a Black, queer, trans, agender, literary nerd, Tahirah is often found with a stack of overdue library books and a mug of perfectly steeped tea, while snuggling their assistance pup Ori or plotting their next crochet, metalsmithing, zine, or home organization project.
