CIVIX, Civics, and Student Engagement in Democracy

By Scott Montgomery

Working Together to Make Our Voices Heard

Sam Hammond

In recent years, ETFO has shifted as an organization. While we have always been committed to equity and social justice, we, as a union of educators, are increasingly recognizing the importance of our solidarity with other social movements.

A Time of New Beginnings

The fall is a time of new beginnings. As members settle into a new school year, we at provincial office are getting our programs up and running, working on implementing the motions delegates passed at the annual meeting and ensuring we have the best services in place for you, the members.

The theme of the fall issue of Voice is allies. As we move through particularly turbulent political times, working together as allies and in solidarity across social movements is more important than ever.
