Zach Grant is the Community Director at the Church of the Holy Trinity in downtown Toronto. The church is a mere 21 steps from the Eaton Centre, the epicentre of retail consumerism in Canada. The contrast could not be more stark. Zach works with, and on behalf of, the homeless people living in Toronto. Each month there is a memorial at the Church to celebrate the life and tragic death of those living on the streets. Zach's life is surrounded by grief and rage, yet their (Zach prefers the gender-neutral pronouns "they/them") compassion and respect for the homeless is on full display. They are a force for change in our city.
Thanks for listening!
