Brian Chang


Brian Chang, a Gay man living with a disability, is a grassroots organizer who is at home chipping away at the façade of urban elitism and the appropriation of social justice work by those who treat it as a hobby and not a lived experience. An incredibly experienced organizer, he has worked all variety of roles such as Finance Officer and Volunteer Coordinator for the Jennifer Keesmaat campaign for Mayor of Toronto, Director of Operations of Jagmeet Singh’s successful leadership campaign,  CFO for Felicia Samuel’s campaign for Scarborough North, and Tour Advancer for Andrea Horwath. A graduate of Innis College, University of Toronto and with a Masters from York University, he is at home in academic discourse or talking in baby-voice to cute puppies. His organizing interests are suburban organizing; ethno-specific, racialized, queer engagement; the environmental policy process; HIV/AIDS & STI/STD prevention; choral music; and music theatre.
