MARIE HADDAD for VP Equity & Sustainability
Hi Everyone, my name is Marie Haddad and I am running with SFU Progressives to be your first SFSS VP Equity and Sustainability. I am a 3rd year student studying Psychology, Kinesiology and Gender, Sexuality, & Women's Studies.
Throughout my journey at SFU, I was an co-organizer and supporter of the #IAmNotYourClansman campaign to drop the racially insensitive SFU Athletics Team Name and amplify Black athletes’ voices. Although the name change was successful, it was simply not enough in addressing institutional racism and Black trauma - so we organized.
Within the SFSS BIPOC Committee, we led the #OurDecisionSFU campaign to push SFU to provide culturally and racially sensitive support among other anti-racism recommendations - some of which are in progress now. However, this is not the end.
We deserve an intersectional, equitable, justice-seeking Student Society that will not compromise or back down on marginalized students' needs - And it is my purpose to advance this work:
Improve Services Support
Take Stances and Advocate for Equity at SFU
Improve Funding and Space
Collaboration and Sustainability
Change doesn’t take time - it takes pressure. I am Marie and I encourage you to vote for real change on Feb 16-18.
