We’re the national peace and social justice agency of Quakers in Canada. This is a special moment because we’ll be taking your concerns directly to decision makers in a much bigger way. For the first time in our more than 90 year history, we’ve hired a Government Relations Representative.
Your voice, grounded in our Quaker approaches that need to be heard, will reach decision makers more than ever before. We’ll keep doing grassroots peace and justice work, but now we’re also expanding into having a deeper policy influence.
Listen to several members of our board of directors explain why this excites them:
Will you help to make this growth a success? Please give a one-time donation in support of our efforts to expand and have more influence on the justice and peace issues that matter to you.
We’re so pleased to welcome our new Government Relations Representative, Sandra Wiens!
