Upcoming Equity Action Committee Events

Brad WalchukUncategorized

CUPE 3906’s Equity Action Committee is proud to announce that we will be hosting a Summer Clothing Swap. Please join us on Thursday, June 28th, from 10:30am to 3:00pm, in MUSC 311/313. Bring clean clothing you no longer wear (we encourage clothing for all body types and genders!). All leftover clothes will be donated to the Native Women’s Centre in Hamilton.

If you are able, please drop off your clean clothes and books at the CUPE office (KTH B111) prior to the event during hours of operation (Monday to Thursday from 9am-5pm). You may also wish to bring your clothes with you to the event and display them upon your arrival. We will have a box on location for book donations.

For more information regarding the poetry event, please contact equity@cupe3906.org

The Equity Action Committee is also proud to announce that we will be hosting an event for members to share their art (poetry, fiction, performance, among other forms of creative expression) as part of a larger initiative titled, “Healing With Feelings.” The theme will be on class and labour! This event is an opportunity to meet new folx, engage with each other’s creative works, and heal collectively from intersecting oppressions. Please join us on Thursday, July 19 in CIBC Hall (308/309). The doors open at 7:00PM while the event finishes at 9:00PM.

If you’re interested in sharing your work, we have 11 available slots of 10 minutes each to choose from. Please sign-up by sending an e-mail to equity@cupe3906.org. Even if you’re not reciting any poetry, fiction, or performing, this event is meant to show support and solidarity to your fellow peers.

We look forward to seeing you there!
