Check out our Hamilton ACORN leaders

Christine Neale

Downtown Hamilton Chair

Christine joined Acorn in 2022 due to ongoing issues with the owner of the apartment building where she lives. She has had an ongoing LTB claim since 2019 and is still waiting for a decision. Another issue that the tenants of the building were dealing with brought Christine to ACORN. Affordable housing has always been an issue near and dear to Christine's heart. 'Rent or Food?' should not be a question people have to ask. Christine has been retired since 2018 after working at a law firm for 13 years.

Stewart Klazinga

East End Chair

Stewart Klazinga has been an ACORN member in the East End for several years. After a couple years of advocating for something to be done about extreme heat in apartments they proposed adding a maximum heat bylaw to ACORN Hamilton's citywide campaigns, & has been involved with the campaign at every step along the way. Stewart joined ACORN to fight for tenant rights in Hamilton & beyond, & is passionate about fighting for our most vulnerable neighbours & for the good of all.

Liz Scott

Stoney Creek Chair

Liz joined ACORN in 2021 after an organizer knocked on her door in her Riverdale apartment building. Since joining ACORN she has led Stoney Creek chapter meetings, canvassing parties, and actions at her building and MP and MPP constituency offices. She believes that basic human needs like housing, utilities, and food should never be unaffordable for anyone. Liz has also been heavily involved in moving forward ACORN's campaign on protecting tenants from extreme heat.

Hojay Byfield

Stoney Creek Co-Chair

Hojay joined ACORN recently, and is passionate about organizing his community - and beyond. A fierce advocate for social and economic justice, he truly believes in the power of collective action. He is committed to bringing the Stoney Creek chapter to new heights; every meeting, every action, every petition signature brings power to the community, and people power is how change happens!

Taylor Korolenchuk

Stoney Creek Secretary

Taylor joined as a member following a conversation with an organizer in his building's partially-flooded parking lot. He immediately jumped into organizing his neighbourhood headfirst, and is passionate about organizing for better conditions in subsidized housing. He has taken on a leadership role in advocating for climate justice for tenants and beyond, particularly for Hamilton's extreme heat campaign. He firmly believes that no one should be made to live in unsafe conditions, no matter their income level.
