Sabina has a strong commitment to building communities that are compassionate and caring and believes that supporting and nurturing multiracial and Indigenous girls and women is a key aspect of continuing to create healthy, resilient communities. She brings extensive skills, experience, and knowledge from her role as Executive Director of a very busy youth shelter and drop-in centre. Her training and experience in the provision of anti-oppression workshops is extensive, including organizational capacity building and cross- and inter-cultural conflict resolution. Sabina has developed policies, procedures and organizational frameworks in which anti-oppressive theories were successfully enacted.
As a woman of mixed race Sabina’s own navigation of discrimination and inequity based on gender, orientation, race, and (dis)ability has informed her commitment to creating new ways of mobilizing change that honours life stories and lived experiences. Sabina believes that this is even more urgent and crucial for Indigenous and multicultural/racialized women and girls, as our voices and experiences have so often been rendered invisible.
