This course provides an overview of the rights and struggles of equity-seeking groups, focusing on racialized groups, differently-abled people, members of the LGBT community, and indigenous people.
Participants review key human rights struggles – past and present. They also explore their own identities, develop awareness of the other, and address difference as a strength and matter of solidarity, not division.
Please note that the region (or the local) selects the courses that are offered. Not all courses are offered in a given year. In some cases, a course may not be available because it is not up to date or because it is being translated.
Specialized courses, such as the training of facilitators and of worker advocates, are offered on an as needed basis during each mandate. Typically, participants from two or more regions attend these national-level courses.
Members interested in union education should contact their region.
