JANUARY 17, 2022 – We are thrilled to welcome Juan to the Small Change Fund team in their role as Climate Action Prairie Organizer. Juan joins our efforts to push Canada to acknowledge the climate crisis as the true emergency it is, and to respond accordingly.
Juan is based in Edmonton, on Treaty 6 territory. As a grassroots organizer, Juan has supported the efforts made by hundreds of Albertans towards a just transition, mobility justice and worker-oriented municipal advocacy.
With roots in Colombia, Juan has completed research capstones on environmental peace-building and energy transitions in South America. Their multiracial and cross-border perspectives inform their work in the grassroots sphere.
In their downtime, Juan enjoys local art and theatre, as well as bird watching. While enjoying these hobbies, Juan’s thoughts never stray far from their profession. They are passionate about developing the role of communities of colour in these fields.
