About For Our Kids

 

We are a network of parents and grandparents in Canada fighting for a better world for our kids and grandkids.

Our vision is a green, equitable, and just world where our children and grandchildren grow up safe and healthy. But we know that in order to get there, we need to come together to advocate for it.

Please consider opting in. No expertise is needed to join—just love for our kids and grandkids. You'll be a part of a supportive community figuring it out together.

 

Our Team

 

Matt Price, Coordinator. Matt lives with his family on Vancouver Island. Matt has 20 years of experience working with NGOs and is the author of the book Engagement Organizing: The Old Art and New Science of Winning Campaigns with UBC Press. He's trying very hard not to get beaten by his son in tennis.

Lella Blumer, Organizer, Eastern Canada. Currently living in the mix of natural habitat and urban development that is southwestern Ontario, Lella also has deep roots in the northern prairies of Alberta. She has worked and volunteered in the nonprofit sector for 30 years while raising two children by spending as much time outdoors with them as possible. 

Galen Armstrong, Organizer, Western Canada. Galen lives, works and plays on Cowichan territory, on Vancouver Island, just south of Swukus. In 2019, he and his partner became parents, twice over! He has spent the last decade in environmental education and organizing. Ask him about improvisational theatre, ukulele, singing songs, and co-ops. Twitter: @galenjoel
