Anne Danks

Anne Danks was born and raised in Scotland, where she studied French and German at St. Andrews’ University. Having begun her career teaching in some challenging secondary schools, she now pursues a passion for social justice through her work with The Trussell Trust, particularly through helping communities set up and develop sustainable foodbank projects. She is also part way through an M.A. in Justice, providing her with an opportunity to rigorously examine and dismantle common assumptions about poverty and its causes.
