Tanisha Garing

Outreach Coordinator


Tanisha is based in Kjipuktuk (Halifax), first moving to the east coast to attend Dalhousie University and complete her bachelor’s degree in Psychology and Law, Justice & Society. Fast forward many years, she has enjoyed integrating more closely into the cozy community that is Kjipuktuk. Having collaborated with various community-based non-profits, Tanisha values building community, acts of solidarity, and mutual aid.
In her free time, she enjoys telling everybody about her very adorable, chunky cat, going on very fast walks, and eating butter noodles.
“I’m endlessly grateful to work with such a compassionate, unique group that is the Apathy is Boring team! I’m constantly learning and relearning the many ways youth envision a more fruitful democracy and community they want to engage with.”
