Audrey Guay (she/her), Organizer

Audrey Guay believes in the power of organized, active citizenship. She finds great joy and energy in developing new skills, working with teams, and engaging big ideas. She is trained in the broad-based relational organizing tradition of the Industrial Areas Foundation and has been involved in the Metro Vancouver Alliance organizing effort for over three years. She most recently organized a Housing Project that engaged labour unions, faith congregations, community organizations, decision makers, and housing professionals in public education events on land trusts and church property redevelopment. Audrey recently completed her Masters in Urban Studies at Simon Fraser University, where she was awarded the 2019 Alumni Award for Community Engagement. Her undergraduate degree from Queen's University was in Health Studies, and she is excited to dive back into the world of public health with the BC Health Coalition. Born in Montreal to a French-speaking family, Audrey spent most of her childhood in Bamako, Mali, and has traveled extensively across five continents. She is deeply grateful to have been learning attachment to place these past five years on the unceded, ancestral Coast Salish territories.
