They have been fighting for social justice for communities of color, QTBIPOC rights for several years on their own. As well as, works for American Friends Service Committee, combating Islamophobia, white supremacy, and fighting for Palestinian liberation. AFSC gave them the chance to follow in their idol, Bayard Rustin’s, footsteps in taking a nonviolent stance against global and local oppression. Tatjana’s goal is to bring art and activism to the people that need to hear it the most, with every action they take.
