Rosie Baker

Office Manager and Local Party Contact

I completed an MSc in Research for Public Policy and Practice via UCL, specialising in autism research. I was  Research Assistant & Project Worker for the York Food Poverty Alliance 2018-19 and co-run a voluntary pay-as-you-feel cafe, The Real Junk Food Project: York.

Professionally, I have been an education and disability practitioner in Manchester, Jersey and currently at Yorkshire universities. Since coming to York in 2015 I have also worked for Barnardo’s in West Yorkshire and QA Research in York.

I completed one year as voluntary Projects Officer for the York Bus Forum, and is a regular activist for campaigns such as anti-fracking and YorSpace housing and have served some time as Yorkshire & Humber’s regional representative on Green Party Regional Committee (one of the national committees that run the Green Party or England and Wales).//Whilst living in Jersey I was secretary of the Reform Jersey Party, and political assistant to one of their elected members, which is where my interest in local party politics and campaigning for a more equal society really began. Now for the Greens, my role involves contributing to policy matters (children’s services, education, housing), and I work in the local party office assisting with casework, campaigns, planning events and coordinating volunteers.

I have a 9 yr old son – a Green Party activist in the making! – meaning family-friendly events and meetings are really important. Last but not least, I won over 1500 votes in the Micklegate by-election in June 2017, coming 2nd at the ballot-box (and 2 years later became a Councillor on my 2nd attempt ! )

Listening to @Keir_Starmer on @BBCr4today

Prime minister says “build, build, build” including 4,000 miles of new roads.

Opposition agrees and says “jobs, jobs, jobs”.

No one saying “climate” or “Green recovery” even once. #WeakWeakWeak

@stephendfenton @HobMoorFriends @hobmoortrees Stephen could you look into Hazel Courts regime for cutting the grass on the ramparts. Seems as though they continue with what they've always done and don't want to know about leaving areas uncut.

In May 2019, we declared a climate emergency with the ambition of being carbon neutral by 2030.
Are you passionate about sustainability with the drive to tackle the challenges of climate change?
Help us realise our future as a carbon neutral city ➡️

Even though the crisis has exposed flaws in the market/state order, post-capitalist institutional change is not inevitable. Join David Bollier's 22 June webinar on the commons.
