Jenny Chen – District 12 Toronto
Jenny has worked tirelessly in the pursuit of ensuring human rights and equity issues are front and centre in the Federation. Her passion for Human Rights is demonstrated through her understanding that the work never really ends and that we must explore new methods of creating access to leadership, PD, learning, and knowledge for all members.
Rather than shouting from the roof-tops for change, Jenny’s approach is to support and encourage members and the organization to reflect on their own work, their own assumptions, and their own biases.
She is an authentic human rights advocate who continues to help OSSTF/FEESO meet its own goal to "not take thought for our separate interests, but let us help one another”.
Congratulations to Jenny Chen, on receiving this year's James Forster Human Rights award.
