Meet with 2022 Public Access Design Jury!

Meet with 2022 Public Access Design Jury!

We’re happy to announce our latest Public Access Design Jury! This year we are joined by Quadira Coles, Zelene Suchilt, Chloe Chang, and Gabrielle Widjaja.

Clockwise from the upper left corner:

Quadira Coles is a Penn State and John Jay College alumni with a BS in Criminal Justice and a MPA in Public Policy. Her work as a domestic violence advocate at Blair County Courthouse and Youth Counselor at a child welfare agency fueled her passion for policy, politics, and a desire to be a catalyst for change. Quadira has conducted LGBTQ+ research and served as a Policy Advocacy Fellow at the Legal Action Center, working on policies that intersect Health and Criminal Justice. She has worked on a Town Council grassroots campaign as the Millennial/GenZ Outreach Coordinator, engaging new young voters. Quadira is the Vice President and board member of the New Jersey Abortion Access Fund and has also served as IGNITE National’s New York Region Fellow, where she worked with a large number of college women to organzie and train them to become politically active leaders in their communities. She now serves as GGE’s policy manager, continuing her work with young girls of color but this time with the ability to influence policy and dismantle systemic challenges that will secure a better future for them. She recently collaborated with CUP on Hey, That’s Not Okay.

Zelene Suchilt is a community organizer, poet and filmmaker based in New York. She has over ten years of experience working for human rights and environmental justice in Texas and New York. 

Chloe Chang is a design strategist and researcher that advocates for social justice and equity as the best outcome of any project or process. Most recently they have been part of the team at design studio Openbox, working to create more opportunities for student-led education at the Williamsburg High School of Arts and Technology, and researching how to support families adapting to life with COVID-19 at home and at school. Chloe moved to Brooklyn from Beijing in 2009 to get their BFA in Communication Design from Pratt Institute, and has made a home here since. She was a Public Access Design Fellow and worked Your Truth, Your Rights.

Gabrielle Widjaja (Gabby) is a Chinese-born, California-raised, Brooklyn-based designer, illustrator, and tattoo artist. Gabby is currently a freelance designer in Brooklyn, NYC and has done projects in editorial and book design, brand design, and general graphic design. She was most recently Brand Designer at Airtable from 2019-2021, and previously was a design intern at Stripe. Outside of the studio Gabby’s alter ego is Gentle Oriental, a studio and personal practice exploring the intersections of visual ephemera and Asian American diasporic identity. Gabby graduated with a BFA in Graphic Design from RISD ’19.
