Kartika Carr

IVE Lead Organizer

Comrades, welcome. My name is Kartika Carr and I was born and raised in Niagara Falls, NY. I organize for VOICE. This work is important to me because I truly believe this is life or death. We are in a monumental time in history. I don’t want to have to answer to the next generation as to why things are so terrible, like people are having to do with mine. God has called us to ignite the fire and be the change. I am ready, are you?  If you want to learn more about how to join the fight, please feel free to reach out to me at kartika@voicebuffalo.org.
