About

Leading on the Left is a blog about political organization, mobilization, but most of all – leadership, in left-wing organizations.

My name is Victoria Occhipinti and I started this blog after leaving my incredible position as Co-President of the largest NDP campus branch in the country.

I wanted a place to put my thoughts, and figured that if I was going to spend the next several months thinking about my experience, and all the things that went well, or that I would’ve done differently, then maybe other people could benefit from my conclusions.

After all, why make your own mistakes when you could just read about all of mine?

So this is that place. Welcome!
