LESA is a proud sponsor of LEAF’s 2014 Persons Day Breakfast, happening later this month.
LEAF (Women’s Legal Education and Action Fund) hosts the Persons Day Breakfast every year in commemoration of the 1929 Persons Case ruling where women were deemed to be persons under the law, thanks to the activism of the Famous 5.
When – Thursday, October 30 (7:30 – 9:30 am)
Where – Sutton Place Hotel (10235 – 101 Street, Edmonton)
This year Dr. Cindy Blackstock (Associate Professor, Faculty of Extension, University of Alberta) will be speaking at the breakfast about how underfunding child welfare on reserves discriminates against First Nations children.
Please join us to hear Dr. Blackstock and to support LEAF in their work for equality rights.
LEAF is a national, charitable, non-profit organization, founded in 1985. LEAF works to advance the substantive equality rights of women and girls in Canada through litigation, law reform, and public education using the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms.
