Usually we share our recent travels, but due to COVID-19, here are recent virtual events instead! CFSC is now hosting film nights on Zoom. Our first screening was Conviction, followed by a discussion with former Ontario Advocate for Children and Youth Irwin Elman. Then we screened Cottagers and Indians with a rich Q&A with its director Drew Hayden Taylor. We will announce our next screening soon via our E-news and social media.
We would like to offer our deep gratitude to Tasmin Rajotte, who served CFSC in multiple staff roles for almost two decades. Tasmin started out coordinating the Quaker International Affairs Program housed under CFSC, which did important and groundbreaking work around intellectual property rights (see https://quakerservice.ca/news/intellectual-property-rights).
She went on to serve as coordinator of CFSC’s criminal justice program, and more recently provided staff support to our board of directors, fundraising, strategic planning, and many other areas. We thank Tasmin for all of her dedication, leadership, and service work over these many years, and wish her the very best as she follows her leading to work in the areas of ecology and environmental sustainability.
