2017-18 promises to be an interesting year for CFUW with regard to advocacy issues. In addition to continuing to advocate whenever possible on resolutions from past years, we have three main issues aris-ing out of the most recent AGM. CFUW will now be advocating for the right of First Nations Reserves to have access to safe, clean affordable drinking water and sanitation, and will be supporting the move for universal pharmacare in Canada. We have also voted to continue our membership in GWI but issues around fee increases have not yet been resolved.
Action and Advocacy will continue to support Inasmuch House next year. They provide an excellent home for women and their children in urgent need of housing.
If you are interested in working on advocacy for any of these issues for the upcoming year, or like the idea of researching and advising our club on new resolutions that are sent out, please contact us about joining our group, as we always welcome new members.
Meets on the second Wednesday of the month, at 1:30 pm.
