Rachel Small lives in Tkaronto, on land that is the territory of the Huron-Wendat and Petun First Nations, the Seneca, and most recently, the Mississaugas of the Credit River. She spends much of her time working within environmental justice movements, and, more specifically, has been engaged in activism that opposes the harmful effects and practices of the Canadian extractive industry for a number of years. She works with the Council of Canadians and is also an organizer with the Mining Injustice Solidarity Network. She has a masters in environmental justice from York University.
She enjoys participating in – and facilitating workshops on – creative activism projects, such as community mural-making, independent publishing, and spoken word. She is one of the directors of the Social Justice Youth Camp.
(She used to co-publish a zine called Purple Grasshopper, and some of her spoken word antics from a few years back are available online here, here, here, or on the Kitchener-Waterloo Spoken Word channel)
She can be reached via this blog, or at email@example.com
