Toronto – March 14, 2017 – Students Against Migrant Exploitation (SAME) recently brought their message of creative activism to more than 200 participants at the Law in Action Within Schools (LAWS) Annual Global Citizens conference held at York University in Toronto.

SAME activists kicked off the conference with a dynamic presentation on how young people can use grassroots strategies, social media, and creative mobilization to make a difference in their schools, neighbourhoods and communities. What followed was a SAME presentation on the plight of migrant workers in Canada that mixed music, visuals, and activist testimonials.
