Yasmin Ullah (@YasminJUllah) is an independent Rohingya social justice activist who collaborates with different organizations at different times on advocacy, media and building alliances with young people from Myanmar. She was born in the Northern Rakhine state of Myanmar. Her family fled to Thailand in 1995 when she was a child and she remained a stateless refugee until moving to Canada in 2011.
Yasmin has served as the President of the Rohingya Human Rights Network, a non-profit group led by activists across Canada advocating and raising public awareness of the Rohingya genocide.
She was a research coordinator at Free Rohingya Coalition, a global network of Rohingya activists and friends of Rohingyas who share common concerns about Myanmar’s genocide and the need for Rohingya survivors to play an active role in seeking a viable future for their community.
She has worked on various projects such as the Time to Act: Rohingya Voices exhibition with the Canadian Museum for Human Rights, the Genocide Learning Tool with the Montréal Holocaust Museum and the Anthology: I Am A Rohingya where she published her poetry. She’s currently completing her undergraduate degree in political science.
In 2021 she was named on the FemiList100, the Gender Security Project list of 100 women from the Global South, working in foreign policy, peacebuilding, law, activism, development.
