Organizing For Justice,



People are fed up with traditional politics. They know something needs to

be done, and they aren't willing to leave it to politicians.



So they're coming together. The occasion: the Organizing For Justice conference. Nov

20-22, in Ottawa.



This is meant as a time for community organizers and activists to come together, to develop strategy, to share vision, and to work on skills and tools that will help them in their efforts to effect change. And, oh yeah, it's open to people who aren't yet involved but would like to be.



There'll be plenty of opportunity for expanding horizons and getting into the nitty-gritty of organizing effective communities for change.

Thank you for reading this story...

More people are reading rabble.ca than ever and unlike many news organizations, we have never put up a paywall – at rabble we’ve always believed in making our reporting and analysis free to all. But media isn’t free to produce. rabble’s total budget is likely less than what big corporate media spend on photocopying (we kid you not!) and we do not have any major foundation, sponsor or angel investor. Our only supporters are people and organizations -- like you. This is why we need your help.

If everyone who visits rabble and likes it chipped in a couple of dollars per month, our future would be much more secure and we could do much more: like the things our readers tell us they want to see more of: more staff reporters and more work to complete the upgrade of our website.

We’re asking if you could make a donation, right now, to set rabble on solid footing in 2017.
