FATIMA DAHER WINS 2008-2009 DOUG MILLER SOCIAL JUSTICE AWARD
Social Science student lauded for promoting social justice awareness throughout the College.
June 4, 2009


The winner of this year's Doug Miller Social Justice Award is Fatima Daher. Fatima has been involved in various social justice campaigns on campus, touching on a wide range of issues. She was integral to the campaign raising awareness for the human rights crisis in Darfur and also tried to get going a discussion group on Middle East issues. She took part in other activities, such as the Building Bridges project and sending students to Leclerc prison for exchanges with inmates nearing the end of their sentences.

Perhaps her biggest contribution was as editor and main writer of the Vanier Voice of Justice, the newsletter of the Vanier Social Justice Committee, work which took countless hours and much perseverance. Furthermore, she regularly helped staff Vanier Social Justice Committee information booths concerning issues of fair trade and helped recruit new members to the committee.

Fatima has also made significant contributions as a tutor, helping students in the Learning Centre as well as the Social Science Resource Area. She looks forward to a career in education.
