*Bio on our Guest Speaker
Sonia Furstenau, BC Greens MLA. In 2014, Sonia became a Director for the Cowichan Valley Regional District (CVRD) in the midst of a contentious battle between the community and the provincial government over a contaminated landfill site. Sonia has worked together with the people of Shawnigan to help build a community of engaged and empowered citizens. Prior to being elected, Sonia taught high school in Victoria and Shawnigan Lake. She has a BA and MA in History from UVic. She has been involved in grass-roots advocacy since 2000, and she very much believes that a community working together cooperatively is the most powerful force there is for positive change.
We will also be hosting a Special Guest: Sonia Theroux, Green Party of Canada Director of Mobilization. From her first foray into direct campaigning in the 1995 Quebec Referendum on separation, Sonia has seen what a critical impact canvassing and “getting the vote out” can make in a tight race. With experience in the non-profit, public and private sectors, Sonia’s toolkit includes fundraising, campaign planning and execution, marketing, outreach, communications, volunteer management and small business management. Sonia studied Political Science at McGill University.
