Tasha has lived and worked across Canada – working frontline with marginalized communities, engaging young people in community development projects and speaking out about issues affecting youth from BC to NL.
Graduating with a BA in Sociology and Anthropology, Tasha started her social justice work in Vancouver with the Positive Living Society and has since worked with youth organizations such as Katimavik, the Columbia Youth Community Development Centre and developed a variety of youth workshops for schools and agencies across Montreal. With a passion for anti-violence work, Tasha worked as a Specialized Victim Service Worker in Trail, BC and earlier this year joined PACT-Ottawa to develop and launch “Project Protect”, a youth curriculum designed to begin a much needed conversation about domestic human trafficking.
Through her work with the Congress of Aboriginal Peoples and the Ulluriaq Adolescent Centre, Tasha has been identified as a settler ally for Indigenous communities. She is back to student life, pursuing her MA in Planning at UBC, specializing in Indigenous Community Planning. Back on the West Coast, Tasha is excited to jump into the local scene and spend the rainy winter curled up knitting with a bunny by her side.
