Randi Ramdeen’s passion for activism and equality began at the age of 17 when she joined a social justice group and participated in the Walk Against Male Violence, an event created to bring awareness to domestic violence and feminist issues.
Since then Randi has continued to speak out against human and animal rights violations and support women’s equality and LGBTQQIP2SAA issues. As a volunteer and Board Member for National Youth Pride Services, she worked to encourage youth empowerment, foster greater self esteem among participants, and develop leadership skills. Recognising the need for volunteers to help in disaster relief efforts after hurricane Katrina, Randi traveled to Mississippi to aid in the provision of food, water and emotional support for hurricane survivors. She has continued to participate in rallies, protests, workshops, and educational events in an effort to raise awareness and speak for those without a voice.
Randi’s drive to affect social change inspired her to run in the 2015 Federal election as a Green Party candidate, which ultimately lead to her current position as the Organizer for the Green Party of Canada; launching her career in politics. As an animal lover and an environmentalist, Randi has also committed herself to living vegan, causing minimal harm and reducing her carbon footprint.
Randi is very excited to be the candidate for Willowdale
