Social Justice Festival at LA Matheson

{GirlKIND + Surrey MLA Sue Hammell }

Last week, we had  the opportunity to particpate in LA Matheson's first ever high school "Social Justice Festival." The idea and project was spear headed by their Social Justice teacher Annie Ohana who is deeply engaging and passionate about all things social justice. Booths were set up by students, each represented a social issue including: child poverty, animal abuse, disadvantaged moms and many others. 

In the gymnamisum, students took to the floor one by one as each of them presented what steps they had taken to create change and do something positive.  It was a pleasure to partake and help us spread our message and inform our community about gendercide and what can be done to combat it.


The wall of "why I need feminism?" Great project by the students.
