2022 FPSE Human Rights and International Solidarity Speakers Tour
The Federation of Post-Secondary Educators of BC is the provincial voice for faculty and staff in BC teaching universities, colleges and institutes, and in private sector institutions. FPSE member locals, represented by Presidents' Council and the Executive, represent over 10,000 faculty and staff at 18 public and 12 private sector institutions.
FPSE’s annual Human Rights Speakers’ Tour is coming up and we’re shining a spotlight on the overlap of human rights issues at home and abroad. Join us Feb 22 for a film screening and discussion about how we can honour and recognize the labour of migrant workers. Then on March 10, we’ll have an expert panel explaining the connection between Canadian mining companies and their complicity in human rights abuses abroad.
