Manager of Community Education
— Meenakshi is a settler living on the unceded territories of the Musqueam, Squamish, and Tsleil-Waututh peoples since 2006. This relationship to the host nations and Indigenous people across so-called Canada demands accountability and interrogations of social justice work and praxis. Meenakshi is a graduate of the UBC School of Social Work (MSW, 2019). She is currently a board member for the Community Radio Education Society, programmer at Vancouver Coop Radio (Stark Raven), and member of the Vancouver Prison Justice Day Committee.
In her role at Pivot, Meenakshi works alongside her interdisciplinary colleagues to envision intersectional approaches to community education. She values Pivot’s uncompromising commitment to the expertise and vision of people with lived and living experience. She works on public legal education materials, policy analysis, community engagement, and coordinating speaking engagements. She is also the primary contact for Project Inclusion related questions.
