Rachel Small is studying environmental justice as a masters student at York University, in Toronto, Ontario. 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 organizes in Toronto with the Mining Injustice Solidarity Network and Breaking the Silence.
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 firstname.lastname@example.org
