May 15th: International Day of Families

May 15th is International Day of Families, a date designated to promote awareness of issues relating to families and to increase the knowledge of the social, economic and demographic processes affecting families.

Far too often we do not see ourselves reflected in what is considered the gold standard example of families: PSAC and the Mainland Human Rights Committee wants to change that by spending the year celebrating you and your family.  

Same-sex parent households, single parents, parents to fur-babies – you get to define what makes your family a family.

All PSAC members are encouraged to send in your pictures or videos of your family to and tell us what makes your family so wonderful so that all of us in your union family can celebrate them too.

In Solidarity,

The Mainland Human Rights Committee
