Marguerite is the Political Education Coordinator. Their commitment to immigrant justice was cemented by a series of solo trips abroad to Central America to learn about the history and reality of the United States’ violent imperial colonialism. After attending a school for organizers in Guatemala, Marguerite worked at a shelter in Southern Mexico where migrants board the infamous “Beast Train”. These experiences built upon Marguerite’s background in student housing cooperatives, anti-racist facilitation, and environmental justice documentary making. They are also deeply involved in harm reduction work in Kensington and are inspired by models of community-care built of and for populations who are excluded from social services. In their off time, they enjoy Somatic practices and plucking the banjo.
