I met Marit Stiles, Canadian politician, many years at my last studio and got to know her first as a human being wanting movement coaching, not a politician. I wanted to speak with her and you all to meet her to see she lives and breathes her commitment to social justice to her very core.
Marit was elected to the Legislative Assembly of Ontario in the 2018 Ontario general election. She represents the riding of Davenport as a member of the Ontario New Democratic Party. She is the Official Opposition Education Critic.
Now, whenever I listen to her speak out for social welfare during the COVID19 crisis, I feel hopeful knowing people like her and her team are advocating for people in need.
Marit embodies the Mr. Rogers quote: "Look for the helpers. You will always find people who are helping.”
We talk about things that apply to folx all over the world:
Marit is truly a solid human being you all need to meet personally, in her home, navigating this crisis both personally and professionally.
