Sabah Munshi

Advocacy Coordinator

Sabah Munshi is a graduate from Virginia Commonwealth University where she completed an undergraduate degree in Psychology, minors in Media Studies and Chemistry. As an organizing fellow for Virginia Student Power Network, she created the No Policing in Mental Health campaign, calling for the end of police-led wellness checks and separation of the mental health crisis dispatch from VCUPD. For three years, Sabah conducted mass outreach and surveyed students about their experiences with VCU’s services and met regularly with administration to advocate for substantive policy change to better serve students of color. Her persistent efforts to build a critical mass of support for adequate mental health services paid off: in 2020, her key recommendation was implemented where students were no longer required to contact VCUPD to speak to a trained counselor during a mental health crisis. Sabah is excited to continue advocating for the wellbeing of her community and the access to an equitable mental health service for all as an AMSA WSL Advocacy Coordinator.
