Haleakala Angus


Haleakala Angus is a recent graduate of the MA Criminology and Criminal Justice Policy program at the University of Guelph, where she also completed her BA in Criminal Justice and Public Policy. In her master’s degree, she completed a major research paper that used Critical Race Theory to examine how Canadian drug policy has contributed to the disproportionate criminalization of Black women. Specifically, she explored how various identities (gender, race, and class) and broader systems of power overlap to produce oppression and disadvantage for women within the criminal justice system. Throughout her studies, Haleakala became passionate about advocating for women’s rights, specifically concerning gender-based violence. Currently, Haleakala is the Project Content Leader for the Femicide Watch Platform (FWP), a joint project with the United Nations Studies Association (UNSA). The FWP is a digital platform that shares knowledge and brings awareness to the global issue of femicide. She has volunteer and work experience at the Women’s Centre of Halton, a non-profit organization in her community where she provides support to women experiencing crisis, distress, or transition. Haleakala is currently working as a research assistant at CSSLRV on various projects.
