Miabi Chatterji joins the Astraea family with more than a dozen years' experience participating in and supporting our cross-issue movements for justice. She was formerly Director of Grants for the West at Resist, a community foundation that has a 45+ year history of funding intersectional social movements, from ACT-UP to AIM to the Black Panthers. She has worked with organizations such as Manavi for South Asian Women, UAW Local 2110, Restaurant Opportunities Center NY, and received much of her formative political training through Youth Solidarity Summer, a (now on hiatus) intergenerational collective of South Asian activists in the New York area creating youth political education. Miabi has a PhD in American Studies from NYU, where she studied and taught in the fields of race, gender, sexuality, labor, and immigration. She is a New York Rangers fan, is always planning an imaginary trip, and is thrilled to be working with the LGBTQ Racial Justice Fund to support our people and movements in the hard and beautiful struggle for liberation.
