MSW Intern, Multnomah County Chapter
- Office: (503) 287-4117
Unite Oregon welcomes our 2016-2017 Master if Social Work (MSW) Intern, Ryan Davis. Ryan is a native Oregonian who boomeranged back to Portland after a several years living and working on the East Coast. Ryan moved to DC after graduating Milwaukie High School and then attended Morgan State University, an HCBU in Baltimore, earning a BA in Political Science. For over a decade, Ryan has held a steadfast commitment to the struggle against entrenched poverty, institutional violence and oppression, political and economic disenfranchisement, amongst other intersecting issues that disproportionately affect minority populations. Since moving back to Portland, he’s worked more intensively with individuals experiencing co-occurring disorders and other traumatic stressors such as houselessness, drawing connections between these stigmatizing issues and larger systemic ills. Ryan is currently in his final year of the Master of Social Work program at Portland State University and is excited to join the impassioned efforts of Unite Oregon as it empowers communities and works upstream to effect meaningful change.
