Eve Reiland| Badass Founder, Executive Director & Editor-in-Chief
Eve Reiland is an Autistic activist, speaker, writer and artist. Also the founder of AmericanBadassActivists.org
She launched the site in April 2016 after an incredibly successful protest, #TheReal5150 campaign, against institutionalized stigma promoted in grocery stores by an energy drink.
Today she focuses on sharing her lived-experience with PTSD and Functional Neurological Disorder to law enforcement, first responders, and students. Eve has been trained by Each Mind Matters and NAMI on advocacy and how to help break the stigma of living with a severe mental illness.
She’s also a current board member for Resources for Independence Central Valley (RICV), a past board member of NAMI Fresno, and Area 8 Board California State Council on Developmental Disabilities.
Eve is a medicinal cannabis patient and advocate too.
In her previous life, she participated in the wave of technology that changed the world and loved it. It all began at fresnobee.com in 1996.
