Join us in welcoming our Winter 2020 Communications and Development volunteers. Zoe and Joeveen will be supporting our work in outreach, fundraising, and events. We are very excited to have them on the BCCLA team!
Joeveen is a graduate from the University of British Columbia where she completed a B.A. in Political Science. Throughout her academic journey, she has participated in countless volunteer opportunities, including an internship in community engagement at Amnesty International. In her free time, Joeveen enjoys playing in a Rec multisport league with her family and friends, and exploring all the beauty British Columbia has to offer. She hopes her previous volunteer, work, and academic experiences, alongside her passion for human rights will assist her in making a meaningful contribution to BCCLA’s work and creating a lasting positive impact.
Zoe (she/hers) is a racialized queer settler living on the stolen lands of the xʷməθkʷəy̓əm (Musqueam), Skwxwú7mesh (Squamish), and səl̓ílwətaʔɬ (Tsleil-Waututh) peoples. She is keenly interested in the relationship between narratives of law and histories of marginalized peoples. She deeply appreciates the work that the BCCLA does to defend and extend human rights and civil liberties. After completing her undergraduate at UBC studying History and Philosophy, Zoe is thrilled to join the team at the BCCLA as a volunteer.
