AUSU Executive Blog – Advocacy Wins

In February 2020, our AUSU president, Brandon Simmons, and VP External and Student Affairs, Natasha Donahue attended the annual Advocacy Week with the Canadian Alliance of Student Associations (CASA) on Parliament Hill in Ottawa. This year, our Advocacy Week was a huge win for post-secondary students in Canada as the federal government announced its commitment to four specific asks that we brought forward to Parliament! Our VPEX Natasha Donahue talks about this year’s amazing Advocacy Week in our latest Executive Blog!
