November 9, 2021
CEED Canada (aka CEED) is a not-for-profit environmental education organization that provides tools and resources to MURB residents and property owners in social housing communities. Our aim is to understand and increase climate action and ultimately, encourage tenants to use their local footsteps to make a global imprint.
Zamani Ra, CEED’s founder, initially created a Waste Management and GHG reduction program as a campaign in a TCHC MURB building to help tenants conceptualize climate action with cultural relevance. Zamani has over 20 years of experience in community capacity building. Over the past 6 years, she has successfully secured more than $100,000 in community improvements with overwhelming community support; become a member of BEA: Black Environmentalist Alliance, and been selected for membership on the Tenant-Staff Oversight and Advisory Board in support of Toronto Community Housing’s Confronting Anti-Black Racism Strategy as a tenant member. She is a Goddess of Inspiration, Warrior of Words, Sharer of Voices, Creator of Curated Content, Builder of Communities, Paradigm Shape Shifter, and Promoter of People Power.
