In 1986 she co-founded Low Income Families Together, a resource center run by and for low-income people. Josephine was appointed Canada’s Official Observer for domestic issues to the UN World Summit on Social Development in 1995, and was also involved with the founding of Foodshare, the Center for Social Justice, the Income Security Advocacy Centre, the St. James Town Community Co-Operative, and Project Esperance - the first permanent housing for domestic abuse survivors.
