Get to know your storyteller! Leading up to our next event, coming up on July 5th, we’re bringing you brief bios of our speakers. Here’s Chris!


Chris Erl is a born and raised Hamiltonian pursuing a Master of Planning degree at Ryerson University. In addition to being a McMaster alum and candidate for Public School Trustee in Wards 1 and 2, Chris has served as the past chair of the Hamilton Pride Organizing Committee, a community organizer with Participatory Budgeting Ward Two and an executive board member with the McMaster Student Union. He lives in Strathcona with his better half, James, and his awesome roommate Parisa.

Join us at the First Unitarian Church on July 5th to hear Chris and others tell true stories from their own lives, live without notes! Doors open at 7. Advance tickets available online (here!).
