Anna Marsden
Chair, NLC Pride Caucus; Capstone Chair, National Programs Committee

She received her B.A. in Communication Studies from Louisiana State University and her M.A. in Communication Studies from the University of North Texas. She now works at UNT as an Instructional Designer in the Center for Learning Experimentation, Application, and Research. Anna has worked closely with the DFW community in the movement to end sexual violence and has made the culture surrounding sexual violence a focal point of her advocacy. She still serves this population today by providing intersectionality training for employees, interns, and volunteers at her local sexual assault resource center. Likewise, through her writing and activism, Anna grapples with issues concerning queer representation and cultural attitudes toward historically marginalized groups.

In addition, Anna is a Founding Member and the Co-President of the Denton Feminist & Queer Collective. This grassroots organization aims to educate the public about issues affecting women and queer-identified people as well as provide opportunities for civic engagement. 

Anna was a fellow of NLC Dallas in 2018 and subsequently served on the Executive Board as the Co-Chair of Institute Curriculum in 2019. That same year, Anna was elected to serve as the Co-Chair of the NLC Pride Caucus. In her free time, Anna enjoys engaging in old hobbies and exploring new ones, such as: reading and writing, playing music, training her dog, tailoring clothes, and more.
