Ben Donato-Woodger

Advisor

Ben started organizing in 2006 after doing a project on climate change in school and feeling shocked by the magnitude of the problem.  Ben enrolled in Marshall Ganz's class People, Power, and Change in his fourth year, while simultaneously obtaining a Bachelor of Arts in Social Anthropology. He then brought back his knowledge of organizing to train organizers in the queer, climate, and progressive movements in Toronto and Etobicoke. He is a bit of a dog person.
