A transgender social justice activist was indicted on charges that she stole money from the anti-Trump "Women's March" organization in Portland, Oregon.

Rebekah Katherine Brewis was one of the founders of a Women's March protest against President Donald Trump after his inauguration in 2017.

Brewis leads an organization named PDX Trans Pride that had a fiscal relationship with the Women's March so that they could receive tax-free donations. Later, she was accused of stealing money from T-shirt sales and other donations.

However, an investigation from the Oregonian concluded that PDX Trans Pride was not registered as a charity to accept tax-free donations.

A jury indicted her on three charges of first-degree aggravated theft and two charges of felony computer crime.

Brewis has denied the allegations, saying simply, "The allegations are absolutely unfounded."

The PDX Trans Pride official Twitter account has been made private.

She had previously been convicted of robbery in 2000 and sentenced to 70 months in prison, according to the Oregonian. She was known as Jorey Brewis at that time.
