Hi, I'm Esther Y. kanga freelance strategist & researcher based in Brooklyn, NY.

I combine methods rooted in restorative justice, community-centered design, and sociology to confront and address complex, hairy issues.

In other words, I partner with teams across sectors to make sure the people most affected by whatever is being designed—service, program, policy—have a respectable place at the table. 

I am currently collaborating with results for america and Lincoln Labs, respectively. i previously partnered with the opengov foundation on a project that was recently featured in wired.

have an idea? thinking about a project? want to just chat about fun things? 
send me a note. would love to connect.
