Toronto People's Assembly on Climate Justice

Saturday, November 17, 2018 - 09:00

Join us November 17th. We’re co-creating a day long climate justice event, in continuity with previous People's Climate Assemblies!

We’ll be hosted by the ***Multifaith Centre at University of Toronto*** an accessible space. Free lunch with entertainment will be provided! 

The Toronto People’s Assembly on Climate Justice asserts that climate change is not a future social and ecological crisis, but a current one and that those most impacted are those most marginalized. Rich nations like Canada contribute significantly to global emissions, though do little for harm reduction, adaptation or mitigation of the global climate crises. Over the past decades, governments and industries globally have inhibited real action on climate change and global emissions have continued to increase. To this end, we seek to centre the voices and wisdom of those most impacted, and seek solutions from the grassroots.

***Toronto People’s Assembly on Climate Justice 2018 Theme Statements:
-  Indigenous Sovereignty and Self-Determination

- Labour and Economics

- Migrant Justice

- Violence Against People and the Land

- Food, Medicine and Sustainable Alternatives

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.
