This series of 30 cards serve to commemorate important people and the impact they’ve had through various social movements in Nova Scotia. They serve as glimpses into important, often neglected stories that have shaped how we live today. We encourage collectors to use these cards as stepping stones toward further learning about important struggles for justice in our region and beyond.
