ITR Program & Administrative Coordinator

Mai-stella Khantouche joined as the It Takes Roots Operations Coordinator in January 2020. She comes out of one of the member organizations of both Grassroots Global Justice and Right To The City; Causa Justa::Just Cause, in the Oakland bay area. She has been doing operations/administrative work for the last two decades and believes that logistics/infrastructure work is political work and important to giving our communities the tools we need to run our own institutions (part of learning to self-govern).  Building those capacities in all of us also allows for the development of our political strategies accessible to all.

She is excited to continue to contribute and expand her skills and knowledge to the collective vision of building community-driven solutions and just transitions for environmental and economic sustainability and human development. She is a queer immigrant of vietnamese and tunisian descent.
