Jaydene Lavallie
VOLUNTEER & COMMUNITY ENGAGEMENT DIRECTOR - Brantford
Jaydene is a queer Michif-Cree woman who is always on the move. She finds strength in being around trees and other femme folks. She firmly believes that building community is just as important as direct action and embraces employing a diversity of tactics to achieve collective goals. Her door is always open to talk life, politics, social justice, or strategy. As a long term committed activist and a Laurier alumni who won campaigns on campus during her student years, she is always looking for new folks who want to start/keep learning and take action. jaydene@lspirg.org.

Karly Rath
VOLUNTEER & COMMUNITY ENGAGEMENT DIRECTOR - WATERLOO

Karly is a queer white settler who strives to use her privileges to show up for people. She is down to listen to ideas folks have on ways to achieve social justice, and support them in their initiatives. She is often found going for hikes or talking to people about bodily autonomy and the truth about the clitoris. Karly is also a founding member of ASCC, an LSPIRG Research and Action group that supports survivors of gendered violence. karly@lspirg.org

Jay Rideout
COMMUNICATIONS AND OUTREACH DIRECTOR - Waterloo/Brantford
Jay is a white settler residing on the traditional territory of the Anishnawbe, Haudenosaunee, and Neutral nations (as well as on the Haldimand Tract). They identify as a Tran non-binary queer person. They are passionate about a range of social justice and environmental issues and advocate for community and relationship building as a way to move towards a more inclusive future. They are always up for some conversations on anything and everything (as ranting is a pretty solid form of self-care). jay@lspirg.org
