Community Partnerships

Upcoming events:

  • FMGSS still needs volunteers to help create a video about domestic violence for the “Femmes Averties/Women Aware” community organization. The members of “Femmes Averties” will use this video to raise awareness of domestic violence and sexual assault among students of Montreal’s high schools and CEGEPs. Those of you who are interested to help, please email thomas.bertrand@mail.mcgill.ca  or svetlana.puzhko2@mail.mcgill.ca.
