Frances is a life-long activist with a passion for social change that has motivated her through her education and professional career. She first started to learn organizing skills in the climate change movement, working with various student groups and environmental organizations at the University of Toronto and beyond where she completed a Bachelors degree in Environmental Studies. Her vision for a sustainable and socially just future led her to pursue a Masters of Environmental Studies at York University, where she is currently studying. She has spent time working on political campaigns, as well as working closely with community organizations such as the Junction Farmers Market to imagine a more sustainable and just city. She holds a strong interest in a broad range of campaigns for social justice and cherishes the opportunity to collect and impart skills as a facilitator with Project Organize.
