It is our pleasure to formally introduce PBSC-UVic’s 2018-2019 Program Coordinators: Linette Lubke and Sarah Pringle!
Linette Lubke, Program Coordinator (Full Year)
Linette grew up in northern BC and completed a B.A. in History at the University of Northern British Columbia. At UNBC she also received her Teaching English To Speakers of Other Languages (TESOL) certification and participated in a semester abroad in Scotland. Upon her return, Linette had the rewarding opportunity to work as a First Nations Support Worker in her local school district, allowing her to learn about and promote indigenous issues. Her growing interest and passion for social justice led to her decision to apply for law school. Now entering her second year, Linette is excited about getting involved with Pro Bono Students Canada and the community in Victoria. When she is not planning her next trip abroad, Linette enjoys playing board games, hiking, and curling up with a good book.
Sarah Pringle, Program Coordinator (School Year)
Sarah Pringle has a B.A. in History and Gender Studies from McGill University, and is heading into her second year of law school at the University of Victoria. Sarah was exposed to issues surrounding access to justice while developing policy for iHuman Youth Society, researching for a prison justice collective, and volunteering with Solidarity Across Borders. Sarah has also facilitated workshops on gender, sexuality, and consent for university students, produced weekly intersectional feminist content for Dragonroot Media’s radio show, and co-spearheaded a cultural revitalization project with local community members in the Inuit hamlet of Pangnirtung, Nunavut. She spends her downtime walking her beloved dog Scout, reading about culture and politics, and watching science fiction television.
