Community Development

Alejandra wocdc
Alejandra Ferguson
Engagement Coordinator

Hello! My name is Alejandra, and Ajax has been my home for over a decade. Books, good food & binge worthy television shows bring me joy. I think it’s important to build up the community you live in & my goal is to help as many people as I can in my lifetime.

Ellie Knight
Events Coordinator

Creating a safe space for WoC in Durham Region is my goal as it allows us to feel more comfortable navigating our everyday lives. This then provides space for the Womxn in our community to create for themselves so they can feel empowered.
