rabble's latest webinar looked at how COVID-19 has affected our country, and what needs to change. It was called called Opening up -- what are the next steps for progressive movements?
With some provinces starting to open back up, and some of them revisiting stricter restrictions and measures, what are the next steps for progressive movements? How will what we do now have an impact on the future? What about ideas like a universal basic income, or a Green New Deal? And what will this mean for workers, with special attention to both gendered and racial dynamics?
On the panel were:
Karl Nerenberg, rabble's award-winning politics reporter
Paul Taylor, executive director of Foodshare Toronto
Leah Gazan, Winnipeg Centre MP
Sheila Block, senior economist with the Canadian Centre for Policy Alternatives

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, while striving to make it sustainable as well. 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 main supporters are people and organizations -- like you. This is why we need your help. You are what keep us sustainable.
rabble.ca has staked its existence on you. We live or die on community support -- your support! We get hundreds of thousands of visitors and we believe in them. We believe in you. We believe people will put in what they can for the greater good. We call that sustainable.
So what is the easy answer for us? Depend on a community of visitors who care passionately about media that amplifies the voices of people struggling for change and justice. It really is that simple. When the people who visit rabble care enough to contribute a bit then it works for everyone.
And so we’re asking you if you could make a donation, right now, to help us carry forward on our mission. Make a donation today.
