Intended to stimulate an alternative political culture in the McGill University community, Social Justice Days is about to mark its seventh year with a week of workshops, discussions, film screenings, and speakers engaging local and global issues. This year we have an international speaker and hip-hop artist from Haiti (Doc Filah), American activist, writer and legal rights advocate Dean Spade, and much more! Social Justice Days testifies to the diversity of critical political engagement on McGill campus, and offers students concrete opportunities to get active in their global community.

Social Justice Days is an annual event series co-organized by the Quebec Public Interest Research Group (QPIRG) at McGill and the Students’ Society of McGill University (SSMU).

This year’s co-sponsors include QPIRG McGill, SSMU, CKUT Radio, Solid’Ayiti, Queer McGill, Union for Gender Empowerment (UGE), Black Students’ Network (BSN) at McGill, RadLaw, and QPIRG Concordia.

All venues on campus are wheelchair accessible. The venue for the hip-hop show is accessible for non-electric wheelchairs only. The venue for the closing event is unfortunately not fully wheelchair accessible. If you have any other accessibility needs, please contact us.

For childcare or translation, please reserve 48 hours in advance at 514-398-7432 or qpirg@ssmu.mcgill.ca.
