About Karl Hardin and Cam Gray

Karl Hardin is a digital strategist with the Dogwood Initiative.
Dogwood identifies strategic points of power that can be leveraged by British Columbians to take back decision-making power over their land and water. Then it’s about organizing and showing up. Karl focuses on realizing this online and moving the action offline.

Cam Gray is an organizer with Leadnow.ca.
Leadnow.ca believes that by coming together to defend the things we care about, we can build the momentum this country needs to rise to the major challenges of our time. Cam works as a rapid response organizer, moving online action to community-based movements across the country.
