Letter: Vote Yes to QPIRG

In a world where disturbing anti-immigrant and anti-women views are getting more and more space, it’s important to have organizations and resources to unapologetically promote social and environmental justice.

QPIRG Concordia is one such space, and I urge my fellow students to vote YES to QPIRG Concordia and their small fee levy increase during the upcoming Concordia Student Union by-elections.

One of the positive things about Concordia is that it’s a place where progressive, feminist and ecological ideas can thrive. QPIRG helps that process with its many working groups, on issues ranging from anti-racism and immigrant rights, to accessibility and queer/trans support.

QPIRG is a welcoming hub for justice and one of the reasons that makes the Concordia learning experience so interesting.

For all of these reasons, I encourage everyone to VOTE YES to the QPIRG fee-levy increase, and VOTE YES to supporting grassroots research and social and environmental justice!

I appeal to all progressive, feminist and ecological Concordians to come out in large numbers between Nov. 15 to 17 to support social justice on campus, and support QPIRG Concordia.
