Debbie Wiseman (she/they)
Debbie Putt-Wiseman is an activist, advocate and community organizer from St. John's. She serves on the board of the Social Justice Co-op of NL and Happy City St. John's, is a member of the St. John's Food Policy Council and works with Food Producers Forum.
In 2020, she co-founded the not-for-profit Sharing The Harvest NL, and successfully lobbied the provincial government to change legislation to allow hunters to donate moose and caribou meat to food banks. She is an advocate for poverty reduction, food security, active transit, and reducing waste.
She feels strongly that our political system needs more diversity, and volunteers with Newfoundland and Labrador's chapter of Equal Voice in outreach.
Her free time is spent tending to her garden and spending time with her cats and the neighbourhood pigeons.
