CAMWL receives 2016 SABA Diversity AwardDecember 5, 2016
The South Asian Bar Association (SABA) of Toronto is proud to announce that The Canadian Association of Muslim Women in Law is a recipient of the 2016 SABA Diversity Award.
The Canadian Association of Muslim Women in Law (CAMWL) was founded in the summer of 2013 by a small group of women who were connected through our identification as Muslim women, our practice and/or study of the law, and our commitment to social justice. We work to advance the legal rights and interests of Muslim women and other marginalized groups in Canada. To this end, we are conscious of the importance of indigenous movements for justice and equality across Canada and strive to ensure that our work complements these struggles.
Our mandate also includes promoting mentorship and camaraderie among Muslim women engaged in the practice or study of the law. Through public education, direct advocacy, and law reform, CAMWL strives to create spaces for our members to voice their opinions on legal issues affecting Muslim women in Canada, and indeed, on any legal issue where diversity, equity, and justice are concerned.
