The worker must work for the glory of his handiwork, not simply for pay; the thinker must think for truth, not for fame.

Darion is driven by his passion and dedication to Oregon nonprofits: a commitment to social justice and building community is what fuels him.

“I believe having a strong community and support system to be essential for thriving in today’s society. At Meyer, I am empowered to give back to the communities that have supported me along the way. The groups we support bridge gaps, provide access and create a level field of equity.”

Prior to Meyer, Darion worked on the communications team at Basic Rights Oregon. Following his passion for social justice and advocacy, he has built community and fostered leadership development throughout Portland and the Pacific Northwest. Former board chair for Q Center Portland and Sankofa Collective Northwest (formerly PFLAG Portland Black Chapter), Darion serves as a board member of the University of Oregon's Pride board and the host and creator of QTPOCTalk on KBOO, the oldest independently funded community radio station in the U.S.

Darion joined the Meyer team in 2015.
