“Our lives begin to end the day we become silent about the things that matter.”
Martin Luther King Jr.
I support clients to better understand the human rights of victims, the multi-faceted experiences of women and children, particularly in post-conflict and transitional justice contexts, and to establish effective laws, strategies, policies and services to address these issues.
I provide tailored online and in-person professional training. I create spaces through workshops and webinars for participants to explore diverse and controversial themes on victimhood, survivor engagement, transitional justice, accountability and reparations.
I add my voice to sometimes difficult conversations on the systems, policies and resources needed to give effect to the rights of victims. I address issues with straightforward, thought-provoking pragmatism which allows persons to confront challenging situations and forge new solutions.
Known to be a frank and knowledgeable interlocutor, I address issues with straightforward, thought-provoking pragmatism which allows persons to confront challenging situations and forge new solutions and paths that work to benefit victims and survivors. I believe in transforming rhetoric into action through survivor engagement and leadership.
Not everyone has the experience and expertise to engage survivor communities to engender solutions that work for them. Working with the best is vital. I bring critical knowledge and a commitment to actionable change to each engagement.
