Masha Burina

Masha is a social movement organizer and educator, originally from Bosnia and Herzegovina, raised in the United States and now calls Berlin home. Over two decades, she’s organized fast food workers in the Fight for $15, youth for truth and reconciliation in the Balkans, transit riders in NYC, Berliners for refugee rights, and communities for global economic trade justice. Masha organizes the Just Transition campaign with the European Community Organizing Network (ECON) and supports the development of new organizing leadership with the Leading Change Network.
How do people find moral resources to build courage in the face of injustice? How do we create resilient structures of belonging that build our movement’s capacity? How do we build power to achieve our goals? Common conditions prevail, but these are the questions that she explores.
