Contacting elected officials may be daunting, but sharing your well-informed opinion can make a real difference on the justice issues that you care about, and can bring about long-term changes to unjust systems. This workshop will help you learn how to navigate the political system to have your voice heard by local, provincial, and national leaders.
The Office of Social Justice is partnering with Canada Foodgrains Bank and their I CARE Campaign which is focused on ending global hunger and poverty by advocating to the Canadian government to increase aid funding and to change public policies that improve access to food for families and communities.
