During Session I of the 2012 CSOP, students in Speaking Out…and BeingHeard: Citizen Advocacy worked in small groups throughout the week. The result of one group’s work was the 59 Cents Campaign, designed to stop the Canadian government’s decision to cut portions of refugee healthcare. This cost to keep the Federal Interim Health Program open is $0.59 cents per person and this campaign asks all Canadians to place 59 cents in an envelope and send it to the Prime Minister’s office to let him know that we will not stand for these cuts. Check out the the webpage at www.59cents.org, the 59 Cents Campaign video or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
