Director of Campaigns and Community Relations
Hi there! I’m Emily, your new Director of Campaigns and Community Relations!
I’m a double major in Economics and Environmental Studies, with a passion for finding community-led climate solutions and making education more affordable for students. In the absence of a global pandemic, you can find me hogging table space at Munchie Bar, screaming about UVic’s 40 billion dollar investment in fossil fuels, or riding the notoriously unreliable route 39 bus.
This year, our campaigns will be really focussed on supporting your mental health, fighting for a better transit system, providing COVID-19 supports, ending sexualized violence and getting UVic out of the fossil fuel industry.
For those of you who like the details, a few projects we’ll be working on this year include: working with the university to provide consent workshops for all first year students; developing new tactics in our fight for divestment; and lobbying the municipalities of Saanich and Oak Bay to stop criminalizing student living situations in their housing bylaws.
If any of this is important to you, just shoot me an email at email@example.com. We need your input, voice and involvement to make these important changes happen.
