Björg Kristjánsdóttir

Björg has been involved in animal rights activism ever since she started volunteering for the Danish organization, Dyrenes Alliance (eng. The Animals’ Alliance) in 2014, shortly after going vegan. After less than a year volunteering, she spent 4 years shaping one of Dyrenes Alliance’s most effective local groups as a local coordinator for Odense, the third largest city in Denmark, where she was responsible for organizing local events and supervising volunteers.

The main part of her job as a local coordinator consisted in recruiting and training volunteers as well as team building and delegating duties between the volunteers. Furthermore Björg has played a key role in forging partnerships with other non-profit organisations to learn from their experiences.

Currently she is Vice-Chairman of the organization working with coordinators as well as volunteers helping them be as effective as possible when advocating for the animals.
In her spare time Björg is an avid cat-petter and hummus-eater.
