Monique (she/her) is a firm believer in the power of community. She is a Special Initiative Outreach Worker for Project Home, working closely with the Opioid Epidemic Community in Kensington, and is in recovery. Originally from Rhode Island, Monique loves being outdoors in all seasons. She is an Indigenous woman, a caregiver, and formerly incarcerated. Through the Change the Narrative Fellowship, she wants to speak out against the spiraling and interconnected economic pressures of incarceration: job insecurity on top of mounting court fees, housing insecurity, and stigma around addiction.
