FASD Walk and Ongoing Action

SEIU-West members were invited once again to march in support of awareness of Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorder (FASD). This walk is held annually by MACSI in Saskatoon on the ninth day of the ninth month at 9:09 am to highlight the nine months of pregnancy.

MACSI is committed to helping women have safe and healthy pregnancies and to supporting individuals and families living with FASD.

We are proud to be a partner in their efforts to educate the public and help put an end to this preventable disorder.

  In order for CBOs like MACSI to continue their community-based work, they need stable, reliable, multi-year   funding from our governments.

  We continue to accept complete CBO petitions with the goal of presenting them to the Legislative Assembly of    Saskatchewan on or around November 6, 2019 - Community Worker Appreciation Day.

  Anyone can participate!

Go to the 'what we believe' section on SEIUWEST.ca and click on the 'People Who Care' campaign (or type in this: http://www.seiuwest.ca/ provide_stable_reliable_multi_year_funding_to_cbos).

Download a copy of our paper petition and print several out, and gather signatures.

Return the original, signed petitions using the instructions that are at the bottom of the petition by October 31, 2019.
