About this Event

Keira is a climate justice intern at Citizens for Public Justice, a public policy organization that promotes public justice by shaping key policy debates in Canada. At CPJ, Keira is currently engaged in climate justice advocacy and policy research. Prior to joining CPJ, she completed her B.A. in International Development from McGill University with a degree specialization in States and Governance.

As an intersectional feminist seeking to dismantle oppressive systems in her personal life, academia and career, Keira worked as a workshop facilitator in Montréal, engaging youths in Québec to reflect on the history of Indigenous peoples in Canada, the Truth and Reconciliation Commission of Canada and United Nations Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples. Keira is passionate about amplifying the role of public discourse and advancing rights for marginalized groups who are faced with greatest vulnerabilities in global climate crises.

Having immigrated from South Korea at nine years old, Keira enjoys working collaboratively with people of different cultural, ethnic, religious backgrounds to promote changes that integrate diverse voices into the policy world.
