Lyra is currently the OCDSB School Board Trustee for Rideau-Vanier and Capital Wards. Due to a Zone redistricting, she is now running for reelection in Rideau Vanier-Rideau Rockcliffe.
She has also been a long-time community activist, having worked with organisations like *Kindspace and the Youth Services Bureau on helping LGBTQ and homeless youth for over a decade. She was first elected in 2018 to the OCDSB, and is proud to be the first trans school board trustee in Canada.
Lyra is running for re-election to make systemic change, because she believes that society needs passionate people to get involved; to leave the world a better place for our children than we received it from our parents.
