2013 Education campaign

Development and Peace's latest education campaign, A Voice for Justice, was launched in response to reports from mine-affected communities in Africa, Asia and Latin America that are experiencing conflict, pollution, forced displacements and other negative impacts from the presence of Canadian mines.
