Staff Lawyer

Anna Cooper

Anna was driven to law school by her desire to address inequality in a systemic way. Early experiences volunteering in the Downtown Eastside and with the Elizabeth Fry Society taught her about the gross inequalities in Canadian society and our continued criminalization of race and poverty.

She attended law school in 2013 and went on to practice in criminal defence and mental health law prior to joining Pivot in August of 2017. She is committed to using the law as a tool to protect and advance the dignity of all people. 

Outside the office, Anna enjoys cooking, hiking, and salsa dancing—all at a thoroughly intermediate level.
