Emma Jackson is a researcher, organizer, and settler living on Treaty 6 territory in Edmonton, AB. She holds a Bachelor of Arts in Geography from Mount Allison University (2015) and a Masters of Arts in Sociology (2019) from the University of Alberta. For her Master’s thesis, Emma was supported by the On the Move Partnership to research migrant caregivers’ experiences of the Fort McMurray wildfire.

She is now an Organizing Specialist with 350 Canada and a Board Member of the Alberta Workers’ Association for Research and Education (AWARE).
