Jennifer Deol is a biophile, social justice advocate and ice cream enthusiast living on unceded Coast Salish territory. Coming from a South Asian immigrant household, Jennifer didn’t grow up spending winters in a family cabin out in the woods or summers by the lake. But she has always felt an intrinsic need to advocate for fairness, equity, and the needs of the most vulnerable voices in this world (critters and humans alike), which are disproportionately harmed by corporate greed and the climate crisis.
