Zerandrian Morris

Zerandrian Morris is a gender non-binary individual who finds inspiration in non-traditional and socially-rejected spaces. As a trainer and facilitator, Zerandrian focuses on social justice movement building, identities, privilege, reframing masculinities, queer theory, non-binary trans* identities, gender and sexuality norms, and youth leadership development.

Zerandrian is currently the full-time Lead Trainer in the NYC Department of Health & Mental Hygiene’s Center for Health Equity division. There, Zerandrian has co-designed and facilitates the Race to Justice Core Workshop with the goal of building a shared analysis of racial equity and social justice across the agency via transforming current structures that work from a white supremacist patriarchal framework to a racially, equitable framework by centering racism as the largest driver of health inequities.

Zerandrian has also provided social justice training to middle school and high school students in The Bronx and Brooklyn as a consultant for the Sadie Nash Leadership Project and Girls for Gender Equity. She has served as a consultant and advisor to organizations including The United Nations, NIDA/NIH, The Centers for Disease Control & Prevention, The Brown Boi Project, and the Philadelphia Department of Behavioral Health. She is Social Justice Director of the Uniquely You Summit, and serves on the boards of the Uniquely You Summit and Project I Am Enough. She has served as adjunct professor at Morehouse College and Georgia Perimeter College. Zerandrian holds a BS in psychology (pre-med) from Spelman College, and a dual MPH in epidemiology and biostatistics from Tulane University School of Public Health and Tropical Medicine.
