Tanesha Bennell is a young, proud Whadjuk Noongar woman. She has been involved in activism since she was 13, having worked on local junior councils and youth advisory groups in an effort to create positive spaces and provide resources for young Indigenous mobs. Tanesha is passionate about elevating the voices of marginalised communities, and advocating equal opportunity, particularly because she has witnessed so many of her own mob go without access to opportunity based on their race. Together with a group of other activists, Tanesha recently co-founded Boorloo Justice, a grass-roots community organisation led by majority Bla(c)k youth who are campaigning the Black Lives Matter Movement in Western Australia. Boorloo Justice organised the recent Black Lives Matter protest in Perth on June 13th, which is estimated to have had a turn out of over 7,000 people.
