Dimitri's Story

I realized that my privilege, experience, and commitment were tools I could use to fight for social justice. I joined The Real News as a correspondent, covering the climate crisis, Canadian politics, and foreign affairs. I interviewed dozens of experts and immersed myself in the issues facing our society. I joined social justice organizations like Pro Bono Ontario, 350.org, and the Unity Project for the Relief of Homelessness in London (UP). I also joined a political party for the first time in my life, running as a Green Party candidate in 2015.
