Biographical history

Sara Jennings is a volunteer and activist who holds the distinction of being the first person 'officially' born in the Resort Municipality of Whistler (although she was actually born in the Squamish Hospital). She has contributed to many local not-for-profits, including AWARE (Association of Whistler Area Residents for the Environment), AWARE Kids' Nature Club, Whistler Watch, Whistler Naturalists, the Whistler Community Services Society Food Bank, the Whistler 2020 Development Corporation, and the Community Foundation of Whistler. Her activism has also gone beyond Whistler, including organizing post-9/11 peace rallies in Southeast Asia, performing at anti-war demonstrations in Washington DC, and putting on puppet shows in Israel and Palestine. In 2017, she was one of 13 Whistlerites to receive the Sovereign's Medal for Volunteers.

Scope and content

Whistler Watch pamphlet entitled "Whistler Welcomes the World But ... at what cost?" produced during the lead-up to the Vancouver 2010 Winter Olympic Games. It details the environmental, social, and democratic costs of the Games, including habitat loss due to construction, pollution caused by transportation, increased energy and water usage, generation of waste, shortage of housing, financial costs, erosion of the civil liberties of those opposing the Games, violence against women, the heightened nationalism of sport, and the use of unceded First Nations territory. It also includes a list of proposed changes for future Olympic games and ways that people can take action.
