Joel Kadish, new Toronto Pflag board member

Our newest Board Member

At our recent AGM, we welcomed a new Board Member, Joel Kadish. Many of you will have met Joel and his trans son Matt at our support meetings. Joel is a lawyer and quickly became a Toronto Pflag volunteer by offering to help anyone do a legal name change.

At our support meetings, it occurred to Joel that fathers were less likely than mothers to attend. He also noticed that the moms in the group were also more eager to share than the dads. You will recognize by now that this was the genesis of our wildly successful Dad’s Night Out. It would not have happened without Joel. He saw the need, had an idea, sold it, accepted help and now runs it.

We are lucky to have him join our team.
