2010-2011 Community Leadership in Justice Fellowship recipients
Danielle McLaughlin, Director of Education at the Canadian Civil Liberties Association and Education Trust (CCLA/CCLET) will partner with the University of Windsor’s Faculty of Education. Her work will focus on helping teachers to prepare students to think critically about civil liberties, understand their rights and responsibilities, and actively participate in democracy. This will include development of new assignments for use during teaching practicums, and online components for an animated civil liberties video series.
Vincent Greason, of TROVEPO, (a coalition of public interest groups in the Outaouais region of Quebec, adjacent to Ottawa), will partner with the University of Ottawa’s Human Rights Research and Education Centre. Greason, who has extensive expertise in community mobilization and public legal education will be a resource on the connection between community group practices, social change and public legal education. He will deliver workshops and a public lecture on this topic, and undertake research on social-rights indicators and comparative anti-poverty practices in Ontario and Quebec. Greason says this work will “help Ottawa’s law faculty strengthen its connections with community partners and sharpen its focus on public interest law”.
