11th Annual OHREA Awards Poster
























The Office of Human Rights, Equity and Accessibility (OHREA) is celebrating the 11th annual OHREA Awards which recognizes the contributions of individuals and groups to advance human rights, social justice, diversity, inclusivity, employment equity, mental health, and accessibility at the University of Windsor.

Our target fundraiser for 2023 is the UWSA Campus Food Pantry. Items can be dropped off at the main UWSA office, Room 209 on the 2nd floor of the CAW Centre. They accept monetary donations, and any items that you typically find in a Food Pantry. They have a fridge and a large chest freezer to accommodate perishable food items in addition to shelves for non-perishable items.
