The Next People’s Assembly shall be on Saturday, May 12th from 10am to 4pm at the S. Walter Stewart library (170 Memorial Park Ave.–a short busride on the #70 bus from Coxwell station).
All are welcome to discuss the future of the Climate Justice movement, figure out how folks in cities can better connect with affected communities, and most importantly, learn from each other. The plan is to have a group discussion in the morning, followed by break-outs for the afternoon that will be focused on creative ways to reach out beyond Toronto (street theatre, flash mobs etc.)
Lunch will be provided by Food Not Bombs and it is a PWYC event.
Hope to see everyone there! Attached is our poster, please bring it to your favourite May Day events this week and show it to all those you meet!
Since 2010’s G20 Summit, the Toronto People’s Assembly has formed four times as a space where the climate and social justice community converges. In our first Assembly, we identified several key components of how climate and environmental justice related to our city. For the second Assembly, we created several People’s Councils to tackle the issue of how to build a stronger movement for climate justice in Toronto. With our Third Assembly, we gathered to share stories about what inspires us as people involved in the movement for climate justice. At the Fourth Assembly last summer we celebrated our diverse and growing local climate justice movement as well as engaging with the strong community at Dufferin Grove Park.
