This activist skills development series was created to help students and community members prepare to take action on issues in the public interest. Training is provided by community members on a variety of topics, from consensus decision-making to publicity and promotions and much more.
Making Connections Week is OPIRG McMaster’s Social Justice and Environment Week. The event runs in annually September, at the beginning of the academic year, and is also known as McMaster’s Alternative Welcome Week. The goal of Making Connections is to highlight environmental and social justice issues, both locally and globally. These issues are significant and require engaged people from all backgrounds, skills and abilities. It is also an opportunity to connect McMaster students — from first year to graduate school — with Hamilton community members. Everyone is welcome to participate.
