Biografie

Evelyn Lilith (now Chava) Finkler has been an activist, writer and academic. She was born in Toronto, in 1958, to a Polish father and Libyan mother, both of whom survived the holocaust. She is the granddaughter of a prominent Hassidic rabbi. For many years, Finkler was an orthodox Jew. Today, she belongs to a Conservative congregation. Members of her extended family reside in a Satmar community in the U.S.
Since 1976, Finkler has participated and organized in social justice movements dedicated to the liberation of women, lesbians, disabled persons and psychiatric survivors. She has often marched against apartheid in South Africa, Israel / Palestine and Canada. Finkler participated in feminist groups such as Women Against Violence Against Women, Lesbian Organization of Toronto, Women for Survival, Jewish Feminist Anti-Fascist League and the Disabled Womens’ Network-Toronto. She was also a co-founder and co-organizer of the very first Psychiatric Survivor Pride Day, now known and celebrated internationally as Mad Pride.
Chava has written almost fifty articles in academic journals, trade publications and the alternative press. Since 2000, much of her writing has focused on mental health and affordable housing. No matter the topic, however, Finkler has consistently presented an intersectional analysis, linking one form of oppression to others.
Finkler received an Interdisciplinary PhD from Dalhousie University in 2009. During her years of study, she received nine academic and / or community awards including the prestigious Trudeau Foundation Fellowship. During her retirement, Finkler continues to advocate for social justice in multiple political and activist arenas.
