Kim is a survivor from Abbotsford BC. She is a licensed hairstylist and is currently working towards her BA in Psychology. Kim is passionate about encouraging survivors to use their voice, and making sure everyone knows they deserve to heal from their past. She has always dreamed of creating a safe space for survivors of sexual violence to release emotions in healthy, and productive ways. Kim also has big dreams of someday renovating a bus into a livable home. Guilty pleasures include but are not limited to: Deal or No Deal, throwing rocks into any body of water, and anything tie-dye. Kim is your biggest “hype girl”, ally and can often be spotted soaking in a kiddie pool in her backyard with her dog, Lola.
Meet Ashlyn! Ashlyn is passionate about social justice and the fight against human trafficking and abuse. She is currently in school for her BA in intercultural studies to one day work overseas as a global worker. The idea of The NO Society was born through a phone call between Riley and her, and that is how she found herself first involved. Ashlyn is unhealthily obsessed with tattoos, chips and her dog, Crouton.
Meet Kaitlin! Kaitlin is currently living in the Okanagan, BC. As a survivor herself, The No Society and their mission mean a lot to her and is so happy to be a part of it.

Meet Becki! As an artist, writer, nature lover, and avid reader, Becki is known to be an incredibly passionate person with all that she does in life. One particular passion of Becki’s is to create a difference in the world through advocacy work by facilitating healing support and knowledge with others as well as within myself. This ultimately led her to discovering The NO Society and becoming a volunteer alongside a passionate team of people looking to provide this support for survivors in the communities. Outside of Becki’s advocacy work, they can be found creating illustrative fantasy art, writing poetry, playing video games, wandering coastal beaches and forests, or reading a good book while cozying up at home with their husband and cat.
