Cristina Kim

Cristina (she/her) is a queer diasporic Korean settler who was born and raised in Chile. Four years ago, she took the opportunity to study on stolen Musqueam, Squamish, and Tsleil-Waututh territories to learn more about the world, hoping to figure out what she could do as an individual in the face of global injustices. As she completed her BA degree in International Relations, she focused her interdisciplinary research on human rights, transnational activism, and gender & queer studies. She now seeks to explore ways to meaningfully advocate for collective liberation by using anti-oppressive and community-engaged approaches that do not rely on violent systems of policing, and are instead rooted in transformative justice and community care.
