Erik’s dedication to uplifting marginalized communities led him to join the team at ONE Archives Foundation.
He graduated from UCLA with a BA in English and Civic Engagement. During his undergraduate career, he was awarded departmental and college honors upon the completion of two theses projects: one on Oscar Wilde’s The Picture of Dorian Gray and the other on the experiences of LGBTQ Armenian Americans in Los Angeles. He also conducted faculty sponsored research on the cultural visibility of intersectional LGBTQ communities, and was a contributor to Outwrite, UCLA’s queer newsmagazine.
Fueled by his passion for vocalizing the issues and concerns of the oppressed, Erik has previously worked as an educator at the Los Angeles LGBT Center (Youth Center on Highland). As a Middle East and North Africa intern at Human Rights Watch in Washington D.C., he conducted research on human rights violations and social injustice against women in Iran. Currently, he serves on the Board of Directors of the Gay and Lesbian Armenian Society, helping with communication efforts.
As the Community Engagement & Program Coordinator, Erik manages community engagement and education efforts, e-marketing and communications, event planning, and assists in fundraising and outreach. His hobbies include playing the piano, redecorating his house, and binge-watching Shonda Rhimes’ TV shows.

Shirley’s passion for LGBTQ representation and the preservation of LGBTQ history led her to the ONE Archives Foundation.
As an editor for the UCLA Undergraduate Law Journal and FEM, UCLA’s feminist newsmagazine, Shirley brings six years of experience with both online and print publications. She earned her Bachelor’s in Political Science from UCLA in 2016. Prior to that, she joined the Climate and Health team at Physicians for Social Responsibility in Washington DC, where she worked on anti-fracking campaigns and testified in front of the Environmental Protections Agency for cleaner air protections in our national parks. She also worked to clarify the path to publicly-elected office as a Candidacy Researcher with Nationbuilder, and led a digital mapping team under Student Services Australia.
As a Managing Editor with FEM Newsmagazine, Shirley honed her passion for feminism and worked to smite the patriarchy one article at a time. Her best memories include marching in Downtown LA for International Women’s Day, and performing for over 2,000 high school students while wearing a dress made entirely of hot pink condoms – courtesy of Adriana Bertini. With the UCLA Sex Squad and Planned Parenthood Los Angeles, she used humor and personal narrative to engage a youth audience, highlight the spectrum of genders and sexualities, and erase the stigma around sexual health.
As the Operations Assistant, Shirley is excited to manage operations to support day-to-day administrative, executive, board relations, communications, and development. Her hobbies include cozying up with a mug of hot apple cider and a good novel, and training to join the Humane Society’s Animal Rescue Team in her spare time.
