About the Activist
Like many activists, Krista started out on her high school and college campuses. One of her high school teachers faced a medically complicated pregnancy and faced the pressure of abortion from the medical field. The experience of the school-wide support for this unborn life would lay a foundation for her future activism.
In college, she served in the background with the cemetery of the innocents, bake sales, and attending pro-life presentations. She was impacted by a presentation on her campus when she realized the gravity of the human rights violation of abortion. Feeling like she did not have a place in the pro-life movement, she thought little of it for many years.
She would later go on to work as the Youth Programs Co-Director of Louisiana Right to Life, which shaped her career and her life tremendously. As she spoke out against abortion in her pro-life educational presentations throughout her home state and even nationally, she discovered her own story of origin over the course of three years.
In that time, she began to explore the consistent life ethic through the outreach and education of Rehumanize International. After attending their Life, Peace, Justice Conference, she was ignited with a newfound passion and was brought to a new chapter of her activism. It was at this point that she integrated her activism with her art, and she saw her musical gifts as a way to spread the message of the consistent life ethic. After winning their create | encounter contest, she served as a member of the board and is now President of Rehumanize.
Around the same time, she volunteered with a Death Penalty Repeal Coalition with the Jesuit Social Research Institute, Diocese of Lafayette and Louisiana Black Advocates for Life, among other activists.
Krista now resides on the West Coast and collaborates with Pro-Life San Francisco and Democrats for Life of America. She has been interviewed on the podcasts of Rehumanize International and Americans United for Life.
Her activism includes educational presentations and conversations, sidewalk advocacy, program consultation, nonprofit communications aid, and nonviolent direct action. She is the founder of Even This Way, a nonprofit that seeks to bring forgiveness to families, compassion to communities, and healing to the hurting.
