The Mary-Jo Nadeau BDS Award
For the second year, CUPE 1281 gave out the Mary-Jo Nadeau Boycott, Divestment, and Sanctions (BDS) award. This year the award was a monetary award of $500 for an organization fighting to end support for Israel’s oppression of Palestinians and pressures Israel to comply with international law. The 2020 award winner this year was Independent Jewish Voices Canada. Thank you again to Independent Jewish Voices for their continued solidarity.
