Staff of the Centre for Gender Advocacy Endorse the RiZe Slate of Candidates + Jane Lefebvre Prevost!!
.
When students face gender oppression due to sexism, transphobia and/or homophobia (each of which are often compounded by other systems of oppression such as racism, ableism and classism), they are not able to derive as much benefit from their educational experiences as those who do not face these barriers. Students who face oppression have to work so much harder just to get through their university experience.
.
This is why we are encouraging all students to vote for candidates on the RiZe slate. For the position of Academic and Advocacy Coordinator, we encourage you to vote for Jane Lefebvre Prevost (although this should not be understood as meaning that there is a reason you should not vote for her RiZe counterpart, Harvin Hilaire who is also well-qualified for the job). The RiZe candidates and Jane are the only candidates who have addressed fighting sexual violence, the importance of intersectional feminism, the need for expanded mental health services, the importance of accessibility, the needs of international students and the necessity of paid internships from the very beginning. .
On all areas of our work at the Centre for Gender Advocacy, we see a reflection of our values in the RiZe team as well as in Jane. These are candidates who care about survivors of sexual violence, who prioritize the needs of the most marginalized students and who understand that no one gets through their university education if they don’t have the support that they need and deserve. .
One of the competing teams, Cut the Crap, has run a campaign branded with Trumpian references and promises to implement a system of online opt-outs that would defund our organization and many others that students depend on. If you care about the work that we do, if you or a loved one has ever benefited from our services, please login (you’ll have received a link to Simply Voting to your email address) and vote for RiZe and Jane between now and Thursday at 9pm. Our continued operation depends on your support!
