NAWL forced to lay off staff and close office

It is with great sadness that I must inform you that because of the Conservative government’s changes in funding policies to women’s groups, the National Association of Women and the Law is forced to lay off all staff and shut down its national office. NAWL’s Board will keep the organization alive on a volunteer basis, but our capacity to consult with women’s groups and advocate for feminist law reform will be greatly diminished.

We will be holding a press conference on September 20th on Parliament Hill to denounce the silencing of NAWL and other advocacy and research organizations by the Harper government.
