William Flores

William first became politically active in 2014. His time on that campaign working under veteran leadership towards a progressive mayor would inspire him to get more involved in his community. After getting his feet wet in the mayoral campaign where he learnt the basic skills of community organizing, William would eventually pursue further training with Project Organize and continue to work with the Spanish-speaking community in Toronto. William looks forward to working with other community organizers to build power in their struggle for social justice. William currently works at For Youth Initiative to empower young people in marginalized neighbourhoods.
