MEET THE TEAM!
ዮሃና (Yohanna) (she/her) is a student-community organizer for political ecology. She is a Black, cis, femme, 2nd generation forcibly displanted African-settler in Tkaronto/Toronto, Turtle Island (in "Scarborough, Ontario"). Her commitment to BlPOC food and land sovereignty stems from her ancestral history of small, local farming, and wood commerce. She loves the independence and self-sufficiency that small-scale agriculture commerce has brought her family and wants to support ethical agriculture practices.
As a community organizer, she has organized for the Black Students’ Association and the Caribbean Studies Students’ Union at the University of Toronto. Currently, she organizes with Climate Justice Toronto and Climate Justice Scarborough with a focus on addressing the root causes of the climate crisis.
In her free time, she enjoys storytelling, reading, spending time in nature, and decolonization.
Yohanna is the Co-Founder of SCM.
