Moka Dawkins

Moka is a Black & Indigenous Trans/2Spirit woman who experienced criminalization due to racial identity profiling, and transphobia by the Toronto Police Services and Ontario’s provincial and federal judicial systems back in 2015. After nearly 5 years of incarcerated activism, Moka in her regained freedom continues to confront in advocacy the injustices and lack of civil protective legislation and it’s homogeneous effects on racialized gender and sexual differing identities/peoples. With current lgbtq2s+ societal & political issues of violence and murders on the rise, Moka’s target focus of educational awareness is furthering knowledge on positive integrated communications with the removal of existing prejudice relations towards black & lgbtq2s+ communities. Moka’s accomplishments include 2018 reformative policies within Ontario’s provincial correctional system in the implementation of an equity and equality policy on identity rights and access to gender-affirming items for trans/2s peoples. Moka work also landed her a 2020 “Person Of The Year” nomination with Inspired Awards. Currently, Moka is in full-time studies with Centennial College in the Community and Justice Services program. A part-time student with Montreal Greater Grace Bible College, she is employed with Black Women In Motion as a Program Coordinator. Moka is also contracted part-time with Ryerson University as a Research and Development Specialist under Dr. Juile James in the Child and Youth Department.
