An Indigenous activist and academic, Lori Campbell blends experience as an educator, communicator, and community member in her approach to politics. With roots and family in the prairies, her vision is for a Green New Deal that works for Indigenous Peoples and fossil fuel workers shifting to a new economy. Her nominators were deeply impressed by Lori’s commitment to community, noting that she only entered politics after asking her students if she should run because while “they were disillusioned with electoral politics, they decided her voice needed to be at the table.”
