Tristan Williams

Development Manager


Tristan has been a part of CURYJ’s fundraising team since October 2020. She’s worked with several nonprofits throughout the East Bay and San Francisco centered around young people’s leadership and music education.

A lifelong musician, Tristan earned her undergraduate degree at Vanderbilt University, where she studied Viola Performance and African American & Diaspora Studies. She believes whole-heartedly in the power of arts & culture as tools for radical social change—that’s what inspired her work as a music educator and what’s drawn her to put down roots in historic Oakland. 
Tristan is originally from Louisville, Kentucky and has been living in the Bay Area since 2018. She’s a proud abolitionist and spends her time outside of work singing & producing R&B and (clumsily) roller-skating through Oakland.
