Who's Who in Toronto350?
Toronto350.org is a grassroots organization supported almost entirely by volunteers. Below are volunteers which have been elected to executive roles and a bit about them. If you are interested in joining our executive, shadowing an executive, or learning more about what they do, we encourage you to come out to one of our Tuesday meetings to learn more.
You can find information about detailed executive position.
The Executive Team
President - Amelia Rose Khan, is responsible for strategic direction and leadership, fundraising, and allyship.
Pronouns I go by are: They/Them.
Amelia Rose chairs the Executive and Innovation Committee of Toronto350.org as Toronto350's President. Amelia Rose's passion for climate related work grew by working on solidarity campaigns and visiting the impact zones across Canada where people are living with the affects of climate change.
Amelia Rose's environmental hero are the people of Grassy Narrows who live north of Kenora, Ontario. They have been passionately fighting the injustices of their land since the 1970s and still fight on. I have been an ally for almost 15 years and visited their lands.

Liza Paul (Treasurer)
The treasurer is responsible for making sure our finances are in order.
I believe that that entrepreneurial leaders have an obligation to lead on sustainability and social impact. I bring my innate curiosity to learn and develop new perspectives, subject training as an engineer and attention to detail to support leadership in the financial life of the group while managing the required financial needs. There is nothing more powerful than collective consciousness and action.
