The mission of the PSAC-Quebec Social Justice Committee is to assess applications for donations submitted by community organizations. Thirteen requests were received from organizations from all walks of life.
The Committee had a budget of $ 10,000. The committee looked at each of the candidates, ensuring that their mission was linked to that of PSAC-Quebec. After analysis, the committee decided to share the sum, distributed equally between the following five organizations.
League of Rights and Freedoms: a non-profit organization that ensures the advancement of rights and freedoms.
MEPACQ: an education and community action movement that engages in social struggles.
Action Network for the Equality of Immigrant Women (RAFIQ): an action network which aims to promote consultation between immigrant and racialized women in Quebec as well as mobilization around common issues promoting autonomy and equality.
Regroupement des Maisons des Femmes: the aim of the group is to promote the safety and protection of women and children who are victims of domestic violence.
Dr Benoît Deshaies Foundation: It is aimed to help people deprived of income or living below the low-income cut-off, by paying the costs of medical expertise and services. The Foundation assists people in obtaining justice before the CNESST.
The PSAC-Quebec would like to acknowledge the exemplary commitment of the organizations that submitted their candidacy and congratulate the five organizations selected.
