I am thrilled to announce that the South End Environmental Injustice Society (SEED), which was founded by African Nova Scotian Shelburne resident Louise Delisle, was awarded the Group Award at the 2018 Nova Scotia Human Rights Awards Celebration this morning for its work addressing environmental concerns in the African Nova Scotian community in the south end of Shelburne.
