The Social Justice Class from Westmount Secondary came with their teachers to visit OPIRG McMaster this morning, and meet volunteers from our Board of Directors, and working groups like Body Equity, Freeskool and McMaster Students for Social Justice.

Our volunteers shared stories about their interests, how they became active on issues, and suggested ways to become an empowered actor in the community (local and global). The Westmount students will be forming their own working groups at their school to address issues they feel are important.

Hopefully some of the students who expressed interest in sustainable transportation will get in touch with OPIRG’s former working group Transportation for Liveable Communities (TLC) and push for those bike lanes!
