Community Action Fair showcasing the work of STU Social Work students @ Great Hall, George Martin Hall, St. Thomas University
Jun 21 @ 1:30 pm – 3:30 pm

STU social work students are doing excellent and exciting work with various organizations in Fredericton and beyond. We hope that you will be able to join us the Community Action Fair that will showcase their work. The fair is happening Thursday, June 21 at 1:30pm to 3:30pm at Great Hall, George Martin Hall, St. Thomas University.

The social work students are working on stopping intimate partner violence, enhancing access to services for immigrants, seniors and youth, improving respite services for adults with autism, winning reforms for tenants and people on social assistance, stopping glyphosate spraying of the forest, and many more important and timely projects.

We will have remarks by Gül Çaliskan on the importance of community activism as well as by Fredericton South MLA David Coon. We will also be joined by Mayor Mike O’Brien, city councilors Greg Ericson, Kate Rogers and John MacDermid,  Fredericton-Grand Lake MLA Pam Lynch and others.
