Sarah’s approach to government is to make sure that public policy is driven by a desire to improve outcomes, increase access to supportive programs, work upstream to get to the root cause of problems and to find holistic solutions which benefit entire communities.

She has a track record to prove her successes and approach: Experiencing a clear gap in Ontario Disability Justice Organizing, Sarah co-founded DJNO(the Disability Justice Network of Ontario) to build capacity in disabled organizers to work to draw connections with other justice movements for systemic change.  She works to the root causes of poverty and housing insecurity and seeks systemic solutions to problems.

In her past role as Senior Program Coordinator at the Hamilton Centre for Civic Inclusion, she ran a Civic Leadership Program which sought to help Black and racialized youth to understand their place in working inside and outside of institutions to affect structural change. Sarah also co-founded the Hamilton Encampment Support Network (HESN), was a founding board member of the Hamilton Transit Riders’ Union, and many other local initiatives. Sarah’s work is always about making life easier, supports stronger for and solidarity deeper between community members.

Her goal is always to improve the lives of Hamiltonians and the community that we all share.
