Survivor Advocate

Kayleigh Garcia, M.A.

Pronouns: 
she/her/hers
Position Title: 
Survivor Advocate
Kayleigh graduated from UNT with her Master’s in Women’s and Gender Studies in 2020. Her passion for ending violence against women and other marginalized communities inspired her thesis titled "Creating a Public Pedagogy for Anti-Rape Activism: How We Learn to Advocate for Others" which analyzes TV shows that depict victim/survivor advocacy in conjunction with an analysis of the official training material offered by the Texas Association Against Sexual Assault. Her multi methodological research worked to understand how we learn to advocate for others. She has spent her time in several non-profits throughout the DFW advocating for survivors of domestic violence, sexual assault and human trafficking. Kayleigh is passionate about volunteer work and activism, but in her free time you’ll more than likely find her on a brewery patio.
