As the Wet’suwet’en Unlocking Aboriginal Justice Program Coordinator, Sherry is responsible for providing services that allow for prevention, intervention, rehabilitation and support to all Wet’suwet’en no matter where they reside. Her unique role within traditional law encourages her to work closely with the Western Justice system as an advocate for the Wet’suwet’en people.
