Recognition for Residents

Kate Quinn, the Executive Director for CEASE, lives in McCauley and was awarded the Edmonton Social Planning Council’s (ESPC) Award of Merit for Advocacy of Social Justice during the ESPC’s AGM on May 6. “Kate has been an advocate for over 20 years for women, men and children who have experienced sexual exploitation and sex trafficking,” said Janice Melnychuk, a former city councillor and school trustee who nominated Quinn. “I met her in the early 1990s when she began this work as a con- cerned member of the McCauley neighbourhood.” The award is presented annually to individuals or groups who have not turned away from controversy when seeking social justice impacting the city or one of its communities over a considerable period of time.
