Join prominent NDP speakers and local activists to nominate climate activist Yvonne Hanson to be the Federal NDP Candidate for Vancouver Granville.

Yvonne is a young climate activist-turned-politician who has volunteered extensively with several community groups in and around the Vancouver area, including Force of Nature, Dogwood BC, Extinction Rebellion, and Our Time - Vancouver. Since moving to Vancouver in 2013 to pursue her Political Science degree at SFU, Yvonne has spent time as a house painter, walk-in gardener, portrait photographer, and garden-center plant doctor.

She has a passion for sharing knowledge, meeting new people, and helping to bring people and ideas together. Her goal in politics is to help lead the conversation towards bold climate action and inspire youth leadership, to push for the green new deal, and to help advance policies that address the intersection between social justice and climate action. Yvonne believes housing is a human right, as is the right to a habitable planet.

Speakers will be announced soon.
