Tom Barker

Alberta Community Ambassador

With personality and drive that could halt a train, I bring an empowering and loving energy to any room. Being a radio host and “local celebrity”, I am used to being well known and build strong meaningful connections with community members. 

I consistently find new and innovative ways to improve our community, including hosting and emceeing events, raising money for local initiatives and advocating for those who may not have a voice.

Gems For Gems to me means strong and independent women, standing up for what is right. Gems impacts me by educating men about domestic violence within Calgary, a part of the initiative of which without it, would be missing a piece.

Gems For Gems has done incredible work within the domestic abuse advocacy community and will sure blaze a trail for its successors to come.
