After receiving her Master's degree from Rutgers University, Anastasia worked as a Researcher/Liaison for INSTRAW, a United Nations agency located in the Dominican Republic that provides comprehensive research and training on gender issues for the international community. Following her work at INSTRAW, Anastasia began work on a multi-media website, BehindTheLabel.org, geared at developing a global network of activists and labor unions to end sweatshops. Her interests and work in multi-media communications technologies have helped her utilize innovative "e-activism" tools to assist in organizing the global labor movement. She has also worked as a Communications Director for several labor organizations, including UNITE HERE, California Labor Federation, and for the David and Lucille Packard Foundation.
