The Shameless Blog is thrilled to announce that we have a new blogger! Watch out for Jessica Yee’s posts:

Jessica is a multiracial youth of Native descent who was called to the line of action by raising controversy in her Catholic school and began volunteering at Homeward Family Shelter at the age of 12. Now at 23, she is a proud Chinese-Mohawk woman whose work is nationally focused on sexual health initiatives for Aboriginal youth and cultural competency. She also does anti-racism work with the Canadian Centre for Policy Alternatives, is a forum facilitator for the Highway of Tears Initiative in British Columbia, serves on the Board of Directors for Maggie’s Toronto Community Prostitutes Project, and is a family group facilitator for the Centre for Addiction and Mental Health. She has written for the Globe and Mail, rabble.ca, and Feministing. Jessica is constantly looking for new ways to be a kick-ass activist!

Welcome to the team Jessica! We’re happy to have you.
