At the recent Community Service Awards Celebration,  the following quote was made by the key note speaker, Jai Richards. Executive Director, The Avenue Community Centre for Sexual and Gender Diversity:

“And finally I'd like to take a minute to thank all of you for all that you do. I'm so thankful for our union partners in our communities. The Saskatoon and District Labour Council and Unions across this country have fought alongside community organizations for worker's rights, safer work environments, for our rights in our workplaces, and also strive to create fair and equitable workplaces for everyone. You champion human rights and social justice issues on a daily basis. Without community members like you willing to take risks, to stand up and be a voice for change, our communities would not be the thriving places that they are.”
