Who We Are
Members of the OSSTF D16 T/OT Human Rights Committee work toward creating a culture that supports human rights and advocates for relations that exemplify the principles of dignity and respect so that all members feel included in their workplace and within OSSTF. We meet approximately three times a year. Our meetings provide a platform for members to collaborate and put forth proposals that positively impact our members as well as students. All members are welcome to join and support the work of the Human Rights Committee.
Human Rights Student Poster Competition
Each year OSSTF D16 T/OT Human Rights Committee facilitates a Human Rights Day Poster Competition. Members can encourage students to participate by submitting a poster with original artwork by the deadline - March 31st. All submissions will be done electronically.
