2020 Special Meeting

2020 Special Meeting
Amnesty International Canadian Section (English Speaking) will be holding three events: two 90 minute Resolution Working Parties on Saturday August 29 and a Special Meeting Plenary of the membership on Sunday, August 30 at 13:00 (EDT) to 14:00 (EDT). All meetings will be held online.

The purpose of these meetings will be limited to the consideration of the following resolutions:

(1) Resolutions A2020-2 Convene Committee to Examine and Reduce the Scope of Amnesty’s Work in Canada; and
(2) Resolution B2020-1 Conduct an Accessibility Audit of Amnesty International Canada. 

Discussion of these resolutions will occur during the Working Parties. Final decisions and voting on the resolutions will occur during the Special Meeting.

The resolutions were included in the AICS(ES) AGM 2020 Resolution Report and were presented to the membership during the June 6, 2020 AGM. Due to time restrictions, these resolutions were tabled at that time.

The Resolution Report may be found in the Resource Library in the MYAMNESTY members’ community.
