Eva Dech

Eva is a human rights activist, community organizer, International trainer, and public speaker. As a pioneer of the youth movement twenty-five years ago, she has continued to be a leader of human rights activism, supporting trauma informed peer support for people of all ages.

Since the early 1990s, Eva has provided support and advocacy for children, youth and families involved with mental health, juvenile justice, education, health, and foster care systems. Her long-practiced intersectional, social justice, and cross-disability approach to advocacy are shaped by her lived experience from childhood trauma and institutional re-traumatization. She focuses on infusing trauma-informed holistic practices and mutual supports to transform services and communities.
