Ms. Martin has organized the illumination of several monuments across BC for the Mental Health Awareness week and currently working towards national recognition of Purple Day. Jacquoline is also developing a meals program for the hungry in our society, as well as promoting public awareness on social isolation through her Project Valentine's Day.  — Jane

I nominate Jacquoline because she works tirelessly for the marginalized and vulnerable within our community, particularly those struggling with chronic illnesses. Her own struggles with epilepsy as well as her experiences with loved ones battling chronic illness inform her advocacy. (https://docs.google.com/document/d/1YRvSUEGQLjLNVUGbMVlkqjog6w64)  — Heather

Since 2013, Jacquoline has been a force of nature in BC for the vulnerable and marginalized. She's coordinated fundraisers for the BC Epilepsy Society and other causes, from volunteering for the Burnaby Task Force on Homelessness, creating an outreach program at Douglas College and acting as liaison to international and First Nations students.  — Heather
