Who We Are

The name Construct The Present comes from an Alice Walker Quote: "Look at the present you are constructing, it should look like the future you dream of." Alice Walker is known as a phenomenal writer and continues to be a black feminist activist and we are inspired by her voice and influence.

 At Construct The Present LLC, we understand that change is not always easy. We employ trained individuals who are steeped in equity based fundamentals, data-driven results, and community engagement essentials. Alexis James is our lead consultant.


Alexis James is a longtime educator and activist. Her current activism is focused on leadership development, employer support and advancing social justice across the nation. Being a native Oregonian has created an enduring and unconditional love for the state and a desire to see Oregon manifest its social justice dreams.
