"Now and then - in the heart of a city, in a community hall, on a factory floor, on a plot of land, out in the woods, on the edge of a precious body of water -- someone devotes their life to their community or the natural world around them.  To something they think is right.  Slowly but surely, they change the world."

Does this sound like someone you know? The CAW Social Justice Fund is supporting the Twelve Canadians series that will consist of a dozen multimedia profiles on Canadians who are making a difference in their communities and around the world.

Each story will focus on a dedicated and courageous Canadian, the background to their struggle, and how this person transformed a small part of Canada and the planet.  A documentary feature called "A Hundred Canadians" that will profile briefer profiles of activists from coast to coast will also be produced.

If you would like to nominate Canadians whose pursuit of social, economic, or environmental justice, or the healthy development of their community has made Canada a better place to live - send a message through the project Facebook page:
