Meagan is a queer artist, educator, baker, reader, friend, sister, daughter and food enthusiast who loves to learn and grow and meet new people. She was born and raised in the northeast but moved to Birmingham in 2014. She never intended to fall in love with the south, but the friends, organizers, teachers, young activists, bakers, mamas, grandmothers, and eventually chosen family she has met here have truly made her feel at home. Last year she co-founded an intersectional feminist bookstore called the Burdock Book Collective, which aims to create radically inclusive community building and political organizing space in addition to offering a curated selection of feminist literature. She has been involved in the Shut Down Etowah campaign to end detention and deportation in Gadsden AL and worked with other youth leaders to plan the Magic City Youth Assembly, where she learned about popular education and facilitation. She spends her free time reading, painting, hiking, and gardening. She also loves to scheme and dream with friends about how to create and build the future we need- one in which all people can thrive.
