Nicola Spurling is a Social Justice Advocate (that's even her official title, in her position with The Flag Shop). She also works with T'eVine, a trans advocacy organization that focuses on attaining better medical coverage for trans people. She has a background in construction and has operated her own construction company for more than a decade. She also has many years of experience working in retail and in other underpaid positions. This vast array of experience has built the foundation from which Nicola pushes for societal equity, such as strengthening human rights, providing affordable housing, uplifting marginalized people, focusing on reconciliation, implementing UBI and livable wages for all, and, of course, climate action, among many other important causes.
