Bobbi Aubin

The Sudbury working group of The Media Co-op wants to hear what kinds of social change people in our city would like to see. In the audio clip in this post, Bobbi Aubin answers the question, "What kind of change do you want to see in your community and world?" Aubin works in Aboriginal Student Affairs at Laurentian University, is a member of the LGBT2SQTA community, and is a 48 year-old single parent of a 22 year-old university student. Aubin has college diplomas in Addictions, Native Child and Family Worker, and Child Youth Worker.

To submit your own answers to this question in audio, video, textual, artistic, or other format, please email us at grassrootssudburymedia(at)gmail.com or make an account and post it yourself. Be sure to include your name and a few lines about yourself, and put the words "Sudbury Voices" in the title.

About:

I am a writer, parent, and activist living in Sudbury, Ontario. For more of my writing, see my personal blog (at http://scottneigh.blogspot.com) and the site devoted to the work I've done focused on the voices of participants in Canadian social movements (at http://talkingradical.ca) which so far has resulted in two books looking at Canadian history through the stories of activists.

About the Sudbury Working Group

The Sudbury working-group of The Media Co-op was formed to create independent media in the North, to speak to our issues and outlooks on our communities as well as the world around us. Independent media provides an avenue for people who are wishing to gain critical perspective on the issues that matter most to us, and to give a voice to those people and stories that you won't find in the mainstream media.

Currently, the Sudbury working group is on pause, due to a lack of members.  If you are keen to take on the challenge of creating and supporting local grassroots media, please get in touch.

Contact us at grassrootssudburymedia@gmail.com or follow us on Facebook.

If we become active again, we encourage you to support local grassroots media by:

  • Getting a membership. Membership fees are intended to pay local writers for local content and support emerging writers.  Membership forms are here
  • Submitting content. We are able to pay for a limited number of strong local pieces.  Contact us to pitch an idea, or for story ideas.   See our Editorial Policy here.  We encourage local grassroots groups to submit content about their work, issues and events.
