Once in power, they are imposing wide ranging attacks on public services, the climate and our communities in the interests of the richest few. The increased racism has resulted in escalating violence, white supremacists are mobilizing and hate crimes are rising. All of this gets worse as we get closer to the October federal election. We must take to the streets to show politicians that racism cannot be an electoral strategy; to show white supremacists that their violence will not be tolerated; and to push forward a unified transformative vision for us all. We all need decent work, universal services, permanent resident status, gender, racial and global justice. Together, we can win.

The intention of this group is to bring young adults who are people of colour together to be able to break individual silos and meet new people. It should be noted given that this space is for young adults, this space will hold nuance for trauma, healing, harm reduction and difficult conversations that arise, but will be guided by accessibility needs and trigger prevention frameworks. The space will only be formal during introductions and then folks can hang out, however folks may plan excursions, on the off days to enjoy the summer together. Jun 21-23.
