Alexander Waddling

Member-at-Large

Alexander Waddling is a grassroots organizer engaging young men and boys on gender equality issues. In 2012 he established Ride For A Dream, an organization that has facilitated various forms of fundraising, educational, and awareness-raising events that address gender inequality in Canada through an intersectional lens. The largest campaign they conducted was an educational speaking tour by bicycle from coast to coast, over 8,400 kilometres, while fundraising for local shelters for women escaping violence. He is also involved in municipal politics, having managed a mayoral campaign, engaged in cycling advocacy, and peer mentorship. More recently he co-organized a project called the 'Meatless Manifesto' to educate on factory farming and its ecological impact, animal rights, and the sexual politics of eating meat, with the intent of engaging men in particular.
