About Njoki Mbũrũ

For years, Njoki has immersed herself in community service, advocacy around public health, food security, and equity. In October 2020, she completed a nine-month policy program with the Vancouver Foundation, where she published and presented a policy brief titled “Anti-racist Approaches to Effectively Address Food Insecurity and Social Isolation among Indigenous and Black Seniors in Downtown Vancouver”. Most recently, she was one of the program facilitators for the 2022 cohort of the LEVEL Youth Public Policy Program, where she supported 16 Indigenous and racialized-immigrant and refugee youth in writing, researching, and presenting their self-selected policy briefs. 

She currently serves on the Board of Directors of Environmental Youth Alliance. Through her multiple engagements, she continues to advocate for policies, projects, and partnerships that uplift the leadership and voices of diverse Indigenous and Black people and communities. Among many intersections of identity, she is a Web3-enthusiast, poet, and immigrant from Kenya who is currently living on the traditional, ancestral, and unceded territories of the Musqueam, Squamish, and Tsleil-Waututh Nations (and hoping to travel more of the world very soon).
