The Carol McGregor CLC Disability Rights Award
September 24, 2022
Every year on December 3, the International Day of Persons with Disabilities, the Canadian Labour Congress will recognize a union member for their disability rights activism. Who inspires you?! Send your nominations! This award is named in honour of Carol McGregor, an outstanding disability rights activist, member of NUPGE and the CLC Disability Rights Working Group―and who was much loved by all those who worked with her. Carol passed away in 2006, and this award lives on in her name to recognize the incredible disability justice activism in our communities. 2022 marks the eleventh anniversary of the Carol McGregor CLC Disability Rights Award.
