Samira Shifteh

Accounting Coordinator
Raised in a family of immigrants from Iran, Samira has been involved in social movements for over a decade, primarily as part of immigrant justice, anti-militarism, and Palestine solidarity work. As a non-profit professional she has held both direct service and operations roles throughout her career. Samira was engaged in direct service work with immigrant survivors of gender-based violence, before transitioning into more operational and financial roles. She brings her non-profit background to her position as Accounting Coordinator at Thousand Currents, with a focus on grantmaking to the global community of fierce activists that we partner with. Outside of this work, Samira enjoys practicing photography, visiting art shows, taking outdoor adventures, cooking/eating various cuisines, listening to music, and being a beloved auntie.
