BE - March ENewsletter

Spring has sprung and we've got a lot coming your way!

Our annual Bromley Lloyd Armstrong Awards Gala is scheduled and we are now accepting award nominations. You can now also RSVP to attend the exciting event where all the award winners will be acknowledged and more!

In May, we will be highlighting the work that we've done last year, recognize our volunteers and celebrate the 2023 graduates of the Labour Community Advocate Training Program. We especially hope to see all the LCA alumni to welcome in the new grads!

March 21 marks the International Day for the Elimination of Racial Discrimination. As part of the Yes, It Matters: Addressing Systemic Racism campaign, profiles of leaders and heritage month highlights are recognized to share the diversity and work within labour and our communities. This month is Bangladeshi Heritage Month and we remember Shahidul Islam. 

We are grateful for your continued support and look forward to engaging with you till our next issue of BE.
