Research Assistant

I was drawn to Urban because of its intersectional mixed-methods research that addresses social justice issues while simultaneously amplifying the voices of impacted communities. I am inspired by Urban’s commitment to equity and inclusion that exists institutionally and remains embedded in our research.
