Take Action! 3 Ways to Stand Up for Students' Rights
The Government of Saskatchewan’s recent attack on the human rights of trans students is unconscionable.
And the fact that the Premier is doubling down by threatening the use of the notwithstanding clause to ram through unjust legislation that puts students at risk just shows how little this government values the rights of educators and the students we serve.
Make no mistake — the students affected by this legislation are our future students in post-secondary.
It’s up to us to stand up for their human rights, against the riding tide of attacks on 2SLGBTQ+ people across North America, and against the government’s use of the notwithstanding clause to force through legislation against the Charter of Rights & Freedoms.
We have been hearing from lots of members who are deeply concerned about this issue, so I want to invite you to take action in 3 important ways to stand up for students’ rights…
Email email@example.com with your RSVP if you plan to join us at the protest on Tuesday October 10 at the Legislature in Regina.
If you have any questions or ideas for other actions we can take as a union in support of this issue, please don’t hesitate to reach out to me by replying to this email or at firstname.lastname@example.org.
I will be at the protest next Tuesday October 10 at 12 p.m. at the Regina Legislature along with many of our members and the students we serve. Look for us under the URFA flag — and I hope to see you there.
P.S. For updates about the October 10 rally, I encourage you to follow the Saskatchewan Federation of Labour on Twitter.
