A Workshop on Building Consensus for Activists

Attending, facilitating, and participating in meetings are a major part of movement building. When we make decisions together in meetings, developing a transparent, structured process that focuses on building a shared understanding and making sure everyone involved has a say can mean that whatever we come up with is more creative and more supported by the whole group. Join us as we spend time exploring effective group decision-making in social movement organizations. Together we'll discuss and share strategies for fostering good communication, embracing dissent in our groups, solving disagreements with creative thinking, and addressing informal group hierarchy through intentional, structured group process. This workshop will be especially relevant for groups who are used to using "informal" consensus (aka "basically consensus") as an approach to decision-making, and who tend to have meetings with 3-20 people.
Nov 7, 2019 - Vigil Outside the Peter Street Referral Centre

When: Thursday November 7th, 5:30pm
Where: 129 Peter St.

Shelters and respite centres are failing to meet the needs of the homeless in the midst of the City's worsening housing crisis. This summer shelter occupancy rates have exceeded the highs of last winter and even respite sites, which provide cots, chairs or mats on the floor for people to sleep on are at capacity. The Peter Street referral centre is intended to be a last resort for those in need of a shelter bed. On a nightly basis dozens of people are forced to spend the night in chairs and on the floor in the centre's waiting area because there is nowhere to refer people to. When the waiting area is packed to capacity others who have travelled to the centre in hopes of securing safe shelter are being turned away and told to come back later. | Facebook event
Nov 6, 2019 - Gig Workers Rise

When: Wednesday November 6th, 8:30am
Where: 505 University Ave

Join CUPW Foodsters United and UFCW Uber Drivers United for a breakfast rally. Together we are fighting for worker rights in the gig economy, together we're making history!

Foodora couriers will be heading to the Ontario Labour Relations Board on November 6th as the next step in their historic battle for unionization. Couriers will begin the fight on the misclassification of gig workers as so-called 'independent contractors'. UBER's drivers are being exploited by the same misclassification and will join us in court. Momentum is building in the movement for justice and union rights. Let's send the message loud and clear on November 6th that the future of work is workers' rights for all!
