Anna Barford

Community Organizer

Anna started her environmental life out in the technocratic world – studying to be an environmental engineer then adding economic management and policy studies to a trip around the world. She came home for the winter of 2016 and started volunteering in people-powered campaigns to build community and take action to stop climate change by cutting it off at the source. Anna is always looking for new and established ways to engage, to build community capacity, and get organized together to win big in the ways that our planet needs us to. When not working for GSA – you can find her hiking, reading, swimming inefficiently, or getting enough sleep in the territories of the Coast Salish peoples most frequently the traditional, ancestral, and unceded territories of the xʷməθkʷəy̓əm (Musqueam), sḵwx̱wú7mesh (Squamish), and sel̓íl̓witulh (Tsleil-Waututh) peoples.
