Sanjana Bijlani, MSW

Clinical Social Worker, Youth Advocacy Program

Sanjana Bijlani seeks to center care and accountability in her work as a social worker. Her work spans organizations in the Bay Area and Philadelphia that support youth, young adults, and their communities of support as they define who they are and how they access the care they need. She received her undergraduate degree in English and French from UC Berkeley and completed her Master of Social Work at the University of Pennsylvania.

She draws on her skills as a writer and a facilitator to advocate for systemic change and support interpersonal growth. Her work exists at the intersection of experiences of interpersonal violence, trauma, mental health, and what it means to re-imagine access to care and accountability. She seeks to invite conversations that center a practice of listening, asking questions that invite space for self-reflection and compassion.
