Voices of Advocacy

In 2009/10 Peggy Edwards studied the Canadian Grandmothers To Grandmothers Campaign to find answers to the question: “How do we engage, nurture and sustain older women advocates in civil society?” Her work is captured in the inspiring 12-minute video “Voices of Advocacy: Older Women Speak Out”, which won top prize in documentary films at the Global Conference of the International Federation of Aging in Prague in June 2012. 

There’s at least one CCS grad shown in this video – Martha Hackett (around the 6:25 point in the video).  There may be others, and other people you know.
