Girls for Gender Equity.
Sasha Neha Ahuja (she/her) is a social worker, community organizer and advocate from New York City. Sasha got her start in progressive organizing at the NY Taxi Workers Alliance in 2005. Since then, she has built her career advancing racial and gender justice and facilitating community-driven policy change at organizations like the Urban Justice Center, Planned Parenthood of New York City, and the National Association of Social Workers. During Sasha’s time in local government under former Speaker Melissa Mark-Viverito, Sasha spearheaded the New York City Young Women’s Initiative, the first-in-the-nation initiative dedicated to lifting up young women and girls of color, in partnership with GGE. This work, now core to GGE’s programming, continues to scale across the country. At GGE, Sasha supports the leadership team in driving the organization’s ambitious vision – a world where young people directly impacted by systems of oppression inform policy change and transformation. Sasha is also an Adjunct Instructor at the Silberman School of Social Work, a trainer and facilitator with progressive political pipeline programs, and an organizer with social work students dedicated to racial justice. She serves on the boards of the Audre Lorde Project and South Asian Americans Leading Together (SAALT).

Sasha holds a BA from Hunter College of the City University of New York and a MS in Social Work from Columbia University.
