Fitsum Areguy is a writer, essayist, and scholar-activist based in Kitchener, ON. His work history spans over two decades, wandering beyond roles and disciplinary boundaries as a youth worker; independent facilitator; recreation therapist; community psychologist; journalist; knowledge broker; and arts-based researcher, to name a few.

His body of work follows two paths: the first is to interrogate how communities navigate and resist various forms of state violence, in particular policing, labour exploitation, and mining harms. A second path involves research in community-based and public health contexts. Fitsum’s research interests focus on family caregiving and young carers; Black and Indigenous studies; critical youth studies; and addiction/substance use and harm reduction.
