National Leadership Program, Fall 2022
Lex Paul is a Nonprofit Management Apprentice in RespectAbility’s National Leadership Program for Fall 2022. RespectAbility is a nonprofit organization fighting stigmas and advancing opportunities so that people with disabilities can fully participate in all aspects of community.
With a background in Community Organizing and Development, Paul is passionate about shining a light on injustice and prejudice, working to build understanding across the political and social spectrum through education and engagement.
Prior to joining RespectAbility, Paul spent 6 years in the desert of southern Israel building intentional communities and actively involved in trans-boundary peacebuilding and environmental projects; as a mentor to Arab, Israeli, and international students. As an educator, Paul is dedicated to helping people connect to their own communities and outsiders through the exploration of their own identities – creating empathetic connections which span ideological rifts.
A native Angeleno, Paul can usually be found reading, creating media projects, or watching the Lakers and any baseball game with his two sons.
