Damali A. Robertson (Hayward, California - USA)
I earned a BA in Political Science and Literature from African and the Diaspora from Pitzer College (one of the 5 undergraduate Claremont Colleges) and a MA in Communications for Social and Behaviour Change from the University of the West Indies, Jamaica, Mona Campus' communications school, CARIMAC. My MA thesis focused on ending sexual violence against women and girls. Ending gender violence remains my passion. As such, I am currently enrolled (and half way through) in an 11-week class at Bay Area Women Against Rape (BAWAR). For the last three years, I've worked at the Haas Center for Public Service at Stanford University as the external relations coordinator. I have two beautiful children. They inspire and motivate me to become better every day.
