Dear Sisters and Brothers,
March 8 is International Women’s Day, an annual celebration of women’s economic, political and social achievements. To build on this celebration, we are happy to announce that registration is now open for the 2016 PSAC Prairie Region Women’s Conference!
Members can register online HERE!
The 2016 PSAC Prairies Regional Women's Conference is taking place in Winnipeg MB on June 11 and 12, 2016. As sisters gather from across the prairies, our objective is to have conference participants reach out and involve other members to build our women's committees and mobilize to contribute collectively to social change. Workshops are currently being developed that will educate participants on strategies to better protect and support sisters who are victims of domestic violence; identify the union's role in advancing the PSAC Pan-Canadian campaign on childcare and promote greater security and human rights protections for Aboriginal women.
The impact of domestic violence against women doesn’t stop at home. It affects workers and their workplaces. This was the main message at a recent women’s forum focusing on the issue of domestic violence.
