Dogwood BC / Dogwood Initiative - 864 Queens Avenue, Victoria, BC

Organization Products, Services, Key Contacts, Map and More Information

Dogwood BC / Dogwood Initiative Products and Services
Dogwood BC / Dogwood Initiative is BC's largest nonpartisan people-powered network that helps people organize to reclaim power over our environment and democracy.

We build a grassroots base of engaged citizens ready to take action outside of the existing political party system by building local teams made up of local people committed to each other and the place they live.

Then they mobilize by channeling large-scale citizen action both online and offline. This might be an election, a leadership race, court case, regulatory review, etc.

We look for tipping points: places where enough citizen pressure can rewrite a law, reverse a bad decision or convince a politician to take a stronger position. There are three main campaigns: No Tankers, Beyond Coal and Ban Big Money.

Named after B.C.'s provincial flower, Dogwood is a people-powered organization driven by a shared love of ...

Christina is Communications Coordinator in Dogwood's Victoria office. She has been successfully communicating since she first learned to speak at two-years-old, and has since used communications skills for good (giving compliments, telling people in danger to “Watch out!") as well as evil (karaoke, talking her way out of speeding tickets).

After spending the first part of her life communicating with ease, Christina decided to turn it into a certified skill by earning a communications degree from Western Washington University (with a political science minor for good measure).

After finishing university, Christina explored several career paths including owning and managing a family business, fundraising and marketing, and a regrettable stint in banking. After beginning work at the not-for-profit Shaw Ocean Discovery Centre in early 2012, she discovered a passion for environmental protection and citizen engagement, which led to an interest in, and eventual hiring at, Dogwood.

Anna grew up in Vancouver, but escaped to Ontario in 2007 to get her Bachelors in Environmental Engineering. After five years of technical studies and co-op terms, she wasn't convinced her career would amount to more than bringing about projects that should never have been proposed in the first place. Her next move was to launch herself further afield to Sweden to study Environmental Management and Policy, this time with the goal of making “the right thing perfect".

After graduating and celebrating the achievement of COP21, she returned home to discover that not all was as being advertised. Her natural habitat, British Columbia, was under threat by Big Oil, and the politicians she thought would change things were doing a very poor job. All of her training and research stretching from spill responders to analyzing the B.C. Carbon Tax pointed her towards saying no to fossil fuel expansion. And say no she did.

I build capacity for movements, organizations, and individuals to effect change across a range of issues and scales. My approach adapts to evolving circumstances and draws on my diverse experiences as a consultant, community choreographer, project catalyst, activist, and artist. I'm on the move, leap at life, and am an experiential sponge.

I seek roles that combine elements of strategy, communications, community, program design, and team-based implementation wrapped within an effort to manifest impact.

My fire rages for art, community, natural building, innovation, complexity & systems, open source and creative commons, digital fabrication, redefining prosperity, transformational social change, and the end of fossil fuels. I am curious about everything.

Specialties: ideation, concept catalyzing, project management, strategic planning, resource mobilization, organizational development, systems thinking, coalitions and networks, volunteer management, communications, digital media, online communities, fundraising.
