Rami first stepped through the door at JACS in 2007 after a decade struggling with their addictions.

Rami is a vibrant member of the Rainbow Community and was elected 2023 Pride Toronto Sober Ambassador. While working at JACS, Rami also attends George Brown College, studying to become a Community Service Worker. Their values represent community, sustainability, Trans awareness, and advocacy for human rights. Rami co-facilitates the Rainbow Group using their experience as a member of the rainbow community.
