Cristina IlnitchiB.A. student, Interdisciplinary Studies in Political Science, Public Health, and Gender, Race, and Social Justice

Cristina is a communicator, researcher, and advocate. With a passion for politics, story-telling, and building community, she looks for opportunities where she can help support the creation of justice-centred policy. As a student leader and working with government, she was always trying to find ways to build meaningful relationships to collaborate on progressive change. This is also what brought her to Iron & Earth and deeply connects her to the work to support a just transition for workers.

Iron & Earth is committed to partnering with Indigenous workers to empower their communities to become self-sufficient in training programs, clean energy transition projects, and employment opportunities to combat environmental racism. It falls to all of us to continue the work of healing and reconciliation in our communities and our organizations. Our relationship with the land and the people who live here shapes who we are. It is in the spirit of reconciliation and honouring the past that we recognize treaties and agreements wherever they are and wherever we work.

We also acknowledge all peoples who live, work, and play on this land, and who honour and celebrate this territory.
As individuals and teams we may make mistakes along the way, but we are dedicated to growth, openness, compassion, and forgiveness. These principles in our work are essential to building successful and healthy relationships with individuals, communities, organizations, and governments.

We look forward to building a path to lead us to a better relationship with Indigenous nations and the environment around us based on peace, friendship, and respect.
