13th Social Justice Forum

- Together We Can Make a Difference -

Young people can play a role in resolving society's serious issues. The first step is identifying the problems and then working together on solutions.

A group of Grade 8 students from GECDSB schools will learn what they can do during the 13th annual Social Justice Forum, Thursday, February 23rd at the University of Windsor's Odette Building. The forum begins at 8:30 a.m. and continues until 4:00 p.m.

Throughout the day students will participate in breakout sessions on Homelessness and Poverty, the Environment, Removing the Stigma of Mental Illness, Lessons Learned from the Holocaust and Experiential Learning through the Arts.

This event is co-sponsored by the Windsor Jewish Federation's Holocaust Education Committee, UNIFOR Local 200 and the University of Windsor.
