Green

(The following is in the candidate’s own words).

 

Claudia Rodriguez-Larrain is an environmentalist, activist, and legal rights advocate.

As an environmental activist, she is co-founder of two environmental not-for-profits, The Regenesis Project and Regenesis International, where she currently holds the title of President and CEO. She is also committed to empowering tomorrow’s future with leadership. In contribution to this, she founded The Oratory club of York, a student-run organization that assists university and community members in developing their public speaking skills, with special programming in the summer for at-risk-youth in partnership with community work programs such as COSTI’s Youth Employment Summer Program.

Over the past 6 years, Claudia has worked with various community organizations and legal clinics as a poverty law advocate, assisting people with disabilities and limited resources in attaining legal representation for housing and disability claims. As the current CEO for the Green Party of Vaughan, she is committed to “greening” and empowering Vaughan with the first women’s club as mandated in the Green Party of Canada’s constitution for empowering women to enter politics with their unique and powerful leadership contribution.

Claudia Rodriguez has also written, directed and produced a documentary film titled, “Are we too stupid to save ourselves?” The film documents the political and social illiteracy of our peers. It will be entered into the HOTDOCS 2011 film festival. As a offshoot, Claudia has tried her hand at art and will have a special installation as part of the Nuit Blanche Guerrilla installation for 2010, titled “The Earth is anxious”, with mixed media components.

The leadership skills of Claudia Rodriguez are as diverse as her learned career. She holds a BA Psychology and College diplomas in Immigration law, Mediation and Arbitration, and Provincial Offences. In order to facilitate her diverse interests, Claudia studied and received a Cosmetology license in addition to a diploma in Film and Videography production.

Claudia Rodriguez-Larrain is the nominated candidate for the Green Party of Canada in the riding of Vaughan.
