Aja Mason, Co-Director:
Aja was born and raised on the traditional territory of the Carcross Tagish First Nation but now lives in Whitehorse. Her diverse academic background includes a BSc in Neuroscience and Philosophy and a Diploma in Northern Sciences. She is now completing an MA in Interdisciplinary Studies with a focus on the correlation between extractive industry activity (eg. mining) and rates of domestic and sexualized violence in the Yukon. Aja is the project lead for the Yukon Advocate Case Review and is excited to bring an interdisciplinary and critical perspective to the ways in which Yukon’s legal system responds to sexualized violence.
