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. As a long-time follower of the organization’s work, she is eager to contribute to Pivot’s campaigns as the Community Educator. Meenakshi first came to Pivot as an intern in 2010 working on Hope in Shadows, and in 2018 she was a summer research assistant. As the Community Educator, Meenakshi hopes to bring intersectionality to Pivot’s work, which has been foremost envisioned by Kimberlé Crenshaw and a host of Black Feminist folk.
Please contact Meenakshi if you are interested in public legal information, workshops, or other community-based education available through Pivot. She is also the primary contact for Project Inclusion.
