Meet Our Team
David Daughton, Exective Director
I am a firm believer in the power of information to transform lives in positive ways and I relish the opportunity to work with a community-led Board toward fostering a Just Society. I have extensive experience in community-based economic development for the co-operative sector and I worked for many years with a consulting business, "Healthy Community Partners", focusing on the connection between personal and planetary health issues. J’ai participé aux Alliances de recherche universités-communautés pour mieux comprendre la sécurité alimentaire et l’économie sociale. I was the Recipient of the Quebec-Labrador Foundation’s “Caring for the Earth Award” in 2000 and of the Canadian Worker Co-operative Federation’s “Worker Co-op Merit Award” in 2009. I love Art, Nature, Lifelong Learning, and living with my family, on the riverbank, in Mermaid.
Kelly Robinson, Program Coordinator
My passion and background are in social justice issues, including sexual violence, family violence, youth empowerment, and the advocacy and support of persons with intellectual disabilities. I have a Masters degree in Theory, Culture & Politics, and a B.Sc., Hons. in Psychology. I am currently serving as Provincial Advisor for PEI People First and have just completed my term as Chair of the PEI Advisory Council on the Status of Women. My "children" are two exceptional cats, Rigel and Silas, a charming little conure (parrot) named Henry and some budgies.
Matt MacDonald, Public Legal Education and Information Officer
I am an aspiring young writer, editor, scholar, and community leader from Glace Bay, Nova Scotia. After graduating from UPEI with a major in Political Science, I travelled to Amsterdam in 2015 to pursue a Master of Laws in the Law and Politics of International Security. My passions include international law, armed conflict, political theory, and skateboarding. I am an editor for the Amsterdam Law Forum, and I am a Junior Affiliate with the Canadian Network for Terrorism, Security and Society. I believe that thinking critically about law, politics, and culture is an essential approach to finding justice in Charlottetown, Canada, and the world as a whole.
Eliza MacLauchlan, Public Legal Education and Information Officer
I am a community minded individual with a passion for social justice. My interest in legal information stems from working with survivors of the genocide in Guatemala who continue to show me the meaning of perseverance and the importance of justice. I am a member of a number of organizations including Breaking the Silence (a Maritimes-Guatemala Solidarity Network), the PEI Migrant Workers Task Force and Field Hockey Prince Edward Island. I enjoy being active and can be found playing field hockey or ultimate Frisbee in my spare time.
