Associate Director for Infrastructure Development

Anamika Jain


Anamika hails from India and Hong Kong. She moved to New York for college and blossomed as a student organizer with the NYU Sanctuary Coalition. In 2016 she completed a fellowship at Instituto Pólis in São Paulo where she witnessed the ‘Right to the City’ in practice and was instantly hooked. Back in New York as a fellow at the Urban Democracy Lab, she continued to explore ideas of participatory democracy and de-commodification of land. In 2018 she published a report with Right to the City/Homes For All titled, “Communities Over Commodities.” She was soon invited onto national staff of RTTC, where she continues to deepen and develop her contributions to the movement ecosystem. She enjoys all things queer, sour drinks and going on long bike rides.
