email@example.com | 604-975-3347
When Deanna Ogle’s mother was hired on as support staff at a local hospital, her family went out for supper – a noteworthy event for a low-income family in rural Saskatchewan. This was Deanna’s first experience of the benefits of a living wage and she has been working on issues related to anti-poverty and gender equality ever since.
Deanna brings to the Living Wage for Families Campaign her experience working with West Coast Legal Education and Action Fund (LEAF), Oxfam Canada and many direct service organizations ranging from health clinics to drop-in centres.
In her spare time, Deanna enjoys hiking and knitting. She is trying to be better at gardening.
