Meet Tasha Henderson
Tasha is proud to be raising her young family in New Westminster, and hopes to help hold the door open for other families and for those who want to be able to stay in our community.
Throughout her career, she has worked on complex projects with both governmental and community-based organizations, including the City of Coquitlam, Women Transforming Cities, the Congress of Aboriginal People, Seabird Island Band, and the Metro Vancouver Aboriginal Executive Council. She tackles issues like poverty, housing, and equity through policy analysis and planning. For the past three years, she has supported the Surrey Poverty Reduction Coalition on multiple projects, including a new Poverty Reduction Strategy and pilot projects that focus on supporting youth from government care. Tasha is a vocal advocate for women- and family-friendly cities and now she hopes to take that experience to the council table.
Tasha believes cities are often underestimated in their ability to make a large impact, and she looks forward to serving as part of a team that believes in the power of local community.
