Rights Investigation & Accountability
Maren (they/them) joined DRW as an Investigator on the RIAP team after 5 years with Disability Rights California in their native San Diego (let’s go, Padres!). As a neurodivergent, Hard of Hearing wheelchair user, they are passionate about disability justice and advocacy. They are especially interested in the intersection of disability and other minoritized identities. Maren graduated from California State University, Northridge with a BA in Deaf Studies; prior to joining the P&A system, Maren taught ASL at the high school and community college level. Maren enjoys stockpiling yarn under the guise of crocheting, accessible skiing, wandering thrift stores to add to their dragon-like hoard of trinkets, and exploring the trees with their service dog, Dug.
