Mona Abhari

Lead Amazon Organizer
United for Respect
Mona is a Palestinian American woman based out of Savannah, GA, but is originally from St. Louis, MO. As a daughter of immigrants, she understands the deep-seated connection between systemic racism, systemic class oppression, and displacement, and works to bring her and her family's lived experiences to her organizing work. Mona started off her organizing career in the climate movement, and now works with low-wage retail industry workers (specifically Amazon warehouse workers) to win better working conditions and corporate accountability. She is also an artist, and believes applied creativity and artistic expression in the electoral, advocacy, and workers’ rights campaigns we collectively build is essential to winning the bigger fight.
