Growing up in a working-class family, Angella knows the importance of solidarity with our Black, Indigenous and racialized communities.
Angella is excited to be a part of a New Democratic government that will move immediately to ban carding by federal law enforcement, and work with local partners across Canada to end this practice in all jurisdictions across the country.
Angella knows the federal Liberal government has promised a lot, but not delivered for the communities that need it. She will fight for permanent federal funding for the 2SLGBTQ+ Secretariat so 2SLGBTQ+ communities can have an advocate in the federal government.
She will also fight to establish a clear and permanent path for resettlement of 2SLGBTQ+ refugees in Canada, and replace the current piecemeal approach that only deals with emergency cases as they arise.
