Usman Mushtaq (he/him), Coordinator

Usman has been an organizer in the area of migrant justice for the past decade in Toronto, Ottawa, and Vancouver. Some of the projects he has coordinated have pushed municipalities and school boards to ensure their policies and services are accessible to all migrants regardless of status. His more recent work has involved collaborating with youth in the City of Richmond to plan, develop, and implement youth-led campaigns. One of these campaigns was to work with Vancouver Coastal Health and TransCare BC to bring trans youth-created education resources that highlighted the experiences of trans youth outside of urban areas to schools, libraries, and clinics in the lower mainland. Usman is excited to bring his organizing & coordinating experience to the BC Health Coalition. He's also the sleep deprived parent of two young kids!
