RJ co-founded the Tulayan Filipino Diaspora Society, is on the board of the Collingwood Neighbourhood House, and is a former member of the City Planning Commission. He is the first candidate to represent OneCity Vancouver, a grassroots, independent organization bringing young people, seniors, immigrants and working people together to share their stories and work toward a city that is affordable, sustainable and liveable.
