Connexions Calendar

If You're Reading This, It's (Not) Too Late

December 10, 2017

Sick of political fat cats running City Hall? Tired of empty promises to make change? Fighting for social, economic, and environmental justice?

Join us for breakfast on December 10th to hear from an exciting panel of speakers to talk about emerging and alternative forms of local democracy and the political landscape in Toronto. This is an event planned in partnership with the University of Toronto Graduate Students' Union Race and Ethnicity Caucus.

Panel includes: Barcelona en Comu representative Kate Shea Baird; Ward 7 Candidate Keegan Henry-Mathieu; Ryerson Urban Planning Professor Pamela Robinson; Indigenous knowledge keeper Amy Desjarlais, and newcomer activist Sandrine Uwimana.

We will then discuss how to put this into action in the Toronto context where people of colour represent 51% of the city, but only 12% representation at City Hall. How does this under-representation affect how wealth is distributed and services are delivered? How do we ensure that “Diversity Our Strength” is more than empty slogan?

Stay after the panel to meet like-minded people and share stories & skills to organize for positive change.

A healthy breakfast and TTC tokens available!
