The Saskatoon Women’s Community Coalition would like to invite all individuals concerned with the recent federal cuts that affect women to an organizing meeting to discuss a fight back strategy. The meeting will be an opportunity to discuss the recent cuts announced by the Federal Government as well as strategize on ways to have our voices heard here at home and in Ottawa .
The cuts include:
- Cancellation of the Court Challenges Program (http://www.savecourtchallenges.ca/)
- $5 million cuts to Status of Women Canada over 2 years (http://www.womennet.ca/news.php?show&4882)
- Private Companies can apply for funding with Status of Women Canada for the first time (http://www.rabble.ca/politics.shtml?x=53346)
- The word equality removed from the goal of Status of Women Canada (http://www.statusreport.ca/)
…and many more
