Save the date! PSAC BC Activist Summit: Building Activism by Building Our Membership

  • Dates: December 2, 3 and 4
  • Delivery: Virtual

This fall PSAC BC activists will be invited to apply for the first ever PSAC BC Activist Summit. The Activist Summit is being sponsored by the BC Regional Council and will take place virtually over three days, December 2, 3 and 4, 2021. The theme of the Summit – Building Activism by Building Our Membership – will explore member engagement in terms of how members can create connections and navigate our new normal as union members, as activists and as community advocates.

The format of the Summit will include 4.5 hours of session on each of the three days, including plenary discussions, keynote speakers and breakout workshops on the following topics:  

  • Just Transition – Navigating the New Normal as Union Activists 
  • Workplace Health and Safety: Strategies for Advocacy and Involvement 
  • Anti-Oppression/Anti-Racism Action and the Labour Movement

The PSAC BC Activist Summit will be open to a maximum of 60 participants. Members in good standing will be selected based on their application content. Consideration will also be given to gender, equity, Component/DCL and geographic balance within the Summit cohort. Additional application information will be circulated in mid-October.

We hope you will join us this December at the Activist Summit!
