Malaika is a feminist social justice activist coming from a diverse academic and professional background. She has worked on campaigns that intersect environmental, racial and gender justice throughout her career in community organizing. Malaika began drawing the link between human rights and the environment after traveling to the Brazilian Amazon in 2014 to learn from Indigenous leaders. There she witnessed rainforest destruction and hydroelectric dam-induced displacement by extractive industries. She has since involved herself in local environmental justice organizing to empower communities into taking action for the protection of their environment and health. You can find her forest bathing, touching as many plants as possible and DJing with her spare time.
