Evan Segura

Director of The Mycoalition

I am a first-gen Chicano community organizer, amateur mycologist, and psychedelic activist.


I have been helping steward the Psychedelic community in Oregon for the past 4 years, landing in 2019 to help pass what became Measure 109 (the bill to legalize supervised adult-use of Psilocybin). Through my service to community, I eventually joined the board of the Portland Psychedelic Society, one of the largest psychedelic societies in the country. I later helped create a church devoted to spiritual healing for BIPOC folks called the House of Jah’siri, and then helped co-found a community healing and events center called the Rhizome.


I am devoted to helping create an educated, supportive and resourced psychedelic community here in Colorado, and I believe the Mycoalition will continue to play an incredibly important role in establishing a foundation for that future. I look forward to meeting you and the rest of this community, and hope to see you at our upcoming events.
