Sienna

Sienna’s path in activism began in a small pediatric clinic in rural Ecuador. Building on her knowledge of women’s issues she partnered with a local volunteer to distribute and implement prenatal care pamphlets. This education initiative led her to pursue a position with Recrear International, a Canadian non-profit which promoted the role of youth in community development. Sienna was an advocate for women’s issues at her university and an active member Women in Living and Learning Program (WILL). Using the WILL template, Sienna hosted a Consent is Sexy Campaign to highlight the unsettling prevalence of sexual assault on college campuses nationwide. She hopes to continue her involvement in advocacy, education, and outreach for women’s issues by collaborating closely with the Sexual Assault and Violence Education student organization and through her internship at Safe Harbor, a Richmond service provider for individuals affected by intimate partner violence.
