Joan Jothi Saldanha

Joanie aka Jothi, wants to plant roots here in Durham Region, specifically in Ajax where she lives.  Durham Region has changed in the past 14 years that Jothi has lived here.  With her family, friends, community work, city building mind, creative heart and motivation to create the change that she wishes to see in the world, the Durham Rising seed was planted! 

We have to start with our own lives, taking the first steps within, in our families/homes, in our neighbourhoods and within the very fabric of our communities.  It's time for Indigenous, black and brown folks to be well represented at the tables where decisions about where we live are being made.  Decisions that will directly and indirectly impact us, our families, loved ones, friends and community at large!
