Ky Walker joined the Tahirih Justice Center in 2016. As the Graphic Designer, Ky works with the communications team, spearheading Tahirih’s visual branding and facilitating the development of creative communications. Prior to joining Tahirih, Ky was the Community Outreach & Development AmeriCorps*VISTA at the Multilingual & Multicultural Center of Portland Public Schools in Maine and a freelance graphic and web designer. She has lived abroad in Saint Petersburg, Russia, where she taught English and studied Russian language, politics, and history.
“I believe in Tahirih’s work not only to support individual survivors seeking justice, but also to transform the structures that perpetuate oppression and drive our society toward eradicating gender-based violence. It is a long road, but one that must be walked by centering survivors who are faced with intersecting forms of oppression and by addressing the needs of survivors through holistic, trauma-informed approaches.”
