Amnesty Cornelius is the coordinator for the Coalition Against the Sexual Exploitation of Youth (CASEY), housed by Thrive. CASEY is a coalition of concerned stakeholders, experiential voices, and community members who work to address the sexual exploitation of youth. CASEY uses evidence-based information to address this issue through prevention groups, public education, trainings, and more.
Amnesty has focused her advocacy on the ethics of engaging people with living & lived experience, the 2SLGBTQIA+ community, and people living with mental health that impacts them negatively. Amnesty completed their Bachelors of Science at Carleton University in Neuroscience and Mental Health. Amnesty graduated with a Masters in Health Ethics from Memorial University of Newfoundland and Labrador. She focused her work on the 2SLGBTQIA+ community and reproductive technologies, as well as advocacy for access to breast reduction surgery for people whose health outcomes depend on it.
Amnesty is passionate about brining differing experiences and perspective together to create understanding. In her current work, Amnesty has observed polarizing views about the sex industry, exploitation, and choice. She hopes her work will reduce these deepening dichotomies to ensure people with living & lived experience have strong allies supporting their anti-oppression work.
