Our Area Councils and Regional Committees (Women’s, Human Rights and Young Workers) were faced with quite the challenge these past few months. How do you operate in the midst of a pandemic? Well, they certainly adapted and continued their important work! The Committee Success Stories is designed to highlight the successful work accomplished by our various committees in the Atlantic Region.

This year, the Regional Women’s Committee of Charlottetown reached an important milestone: their 30 years of existence!

Despite the first real cold day of the Season, UNDE members in Gagetown did a good job to inform the public about the current campaign from PSAC/UNDE.  When governments contract out public sector work to private companies, profits take priority over services, and everyone, except the corporate shareholders, ends up paying the price.  More details on the campaign can be found at: https://uncoverthecost.ca/

Transgender Day of Remembrance started as a vigil in 1999 to commemorate the death of Rita Hester, a transgender woman killed in 1998. Rita Hester was a highly vocal and visible member of the Trans community in Boston Massachusetts.

Violence against transgender and gender non-conforming people, particularly Black and Brown transgender women, is at an all-time epidemic proportion.

While this day is a day of mourning and remembrance, it is also a day to reflect on contributions to the Transgender community and the power of their survival.
