Jahmil Roberts, Interim Hotline Manager

Jahmil Roberts (no pronouns/we) is currently serving as the Interim Hotline Manager at Trans Lifeline and works to build practices of connection. Jahmil began as an operator in this work, and their goal is to shift the ways that we approach peer support by centering the relationships that we build through providing this service. through this lens, we are able to focus on how people relate to one another in gathering to work and sharing purpose, by encouraging analysis and curiosity while building trust. we encourage one another to create language, to name and address the impacts of oppressive systemic harm, and nurture individual and collective growth and healing.
