Red Lasiste

Director of Finance and Operations

Red grew up in Manila, Philippines. He now lives in Vancouver, BC.

In addition to joining NCLN, Red is a Financial Assurance Associate and an entrepreneur. In his pastime, he enjoys photography, fitness, and travelling.

Red looks forward to being an active part of NCLN, pursuing  a society that preserves the life of the unborn. It is no lie that plenty have become more accustomed to desecrating this valuable life. The liberal culture has forced many people he personally knew to disregard their morality and buy into this dangerous sheep mentality. Through NCLN, he hopes that university students who are in similar dilemmas (being politically correct versus standing up for the life of the unborn) would be empowered to fight for what is morally right.
