Rindy was raised mostly in Douglas County and grew up watching and helping the adults around her organize on shoestring budgets to build community, from family Song Fests to her school’s PTA. Rindy has held vigil with Veterans for Peace, marched against Monsanto, and organized “love walls” to block funerals from the Westboro Baptist Church after the Umpqua Community College shooting in 2015. In 2016, she loaded her car with donations from the community and hit the road for Standing Rock. When she returned home, she joined the fight against the Pacific Connector Pipeline organizing events such as Pints Not Pipelines to raise community awareness. With the Common Ground Coalition of Douglas County, Rindy helped organize Douglas County’s first Indigenous People’s Rally, Equality March, and Resistance Picnic. When Douglas County closed all of their libraries in 2017, she helped organize to reopen her local library branch as an all-volunteer operation.
