Mebrat is a mother, community developer, teacher, and singer known for her passion, enthusiasm, and energy. An Eritrean, she was born in Ethiopia and raised in Montreal.

As Executive Director of WISH and Co-Chair of Living in Community, Mebrat supports women and initiatives that advance the health and safety of women engaged in street-based sex work. She has worked in social justice, non-profit management, and community development for over twenty years, having previously served as a Programs Officer with Status of Women Canada and as executive director of PeerNetBC. In a volunteer capacity, Mebrat sits on the Boards of Pivot Legal Society and the Equality Fund, serves on the City of Vancouver’s Black History Month Planning Committee, and works with the Vancouver Youth Choir. She lives in East Van, where she can be found singing, adventuring, and plotting with her son, much to their cat’s chagrin.
