Hunter King is a white, trans, working-class-raised, abolitionist organizer based in Durham, NC. Passionate about transformative justice and community self-determination, they are dedicated to defending and creating space for communities to come together to build collectively for liberation.
Before rooting in the South, Hunter spent seven years in the Bay Area amplifying the leadership of working-class Black and Latinx communities in fights to end speculation and state violence. Their commitment to tearing down prison walls and experiences with inside-outside and internationalist organizing grounds their work. Hunter brings curiosity and rigor to practicing autonomy, from participatory decision-making to principled struggle. They like to geek about narrative organizing, Afro-Futurist lit, and their latest attempts to make Thai food on their front porch.
