ActivismI am involved with a number of social concerns, both as an organizer and a documenter of events. Radical Citizen Media is a visual archive of many events, rallies, and marches in Edmonton. Running this site has almost become a second profession for me. My channel at YouTube is where all of the videos from the events documented at Raising My Voice are archived. Since Flickr is such as great way to upload and share photos, I also post many of my photos from Raising My Voice there as well. This Is What Democracy Looks Like is a photo blog featuring some of my best shots at rallies and protests in Edmonton. From the Ground Up was a quarterly 'zine I published and edited, that showcased the work and events from Edmonton's activist community. Alberta Street News is a street newspaper sold by people experiencing poverty and homelessness. I am a contributor and maintain the website. Active Observer was my social justice column I used to write for Our Voice: Edmonton's Street Magazine, which I now continue in From the Ground Up. I present a social concern of local significance and then try to offer suggestions or alternatives. The Edmonton Social Justice/Activist Resource and Contact Guide was originally an independent print publication that I edited. The Edmonton Coalition Against War and Racism (ECAWAR) organizes peace marches and events throughout the year. I maintain the website and help organize.
