OPIRG Kingston, Queen’s Reads: A conversation on radical love and abolition

The Queen’s Reads program provides free physical and e-books of a chosen text to all Queen’s students, staff, and faculty each year.

Rally with PSAC 901

Are you desperate for adequate mental health care, mandatory anti-racism training, mandatory sexual assault and harassment training, and more? Are you sick to your stomach from Queen’s failure to care about graduate student-workers who live with anti-Blackness, settler colonialism, islamophobia, transmisogyny, homophboia, transphobia, anti-semitism, abelism, housing insecurity, and food insecurity on campus every single day?

Join PSAC 901 to stand up for the rights of graduate student-workers, for their rights to dignity, safety and equity in the workplace. An equitable contract for graduate student-workers means a more equitable classroom for undergraduate students.
