Catalyst Centre is pleased to announce that Kellie Scanlan and Denise Hampden will be hosting the second of three walking conversations on labour history in Toronto. Kellie has extensive labour, union and popular education experience. Denise brings years of equity work practice, with women, Aboriginal workers, and workers of colour.

The walk will retrace the steps of the Brotherhood of Sleeping Car Porters, and the important history of struggle that helped shape the industrial and commercial city that Toronto is today. After this walk through history, we will have a chance to reflect at the Royal York hotel, a mainstay of both Toronto and railway history.

Bring your walking shoes and a friend or two!

Feel free to share widely!

This event is free!

Meet under the large clock in the Great Hall of Union Station at 6:30 pm.
