We will be planning our fall event at this meeting, Local Approaches to creating positive change. Brief summary:

KW Peace invites local groups and community members working for positive change in the Kitchener Waterloo Community to join us for a day of sharing, collaboration, and action.

There’s so much positive action happening in KW and we want to celebrate it by getting together and learning from each other! Come prepared to be inspired by the incredible people working our out community, and share your own work and passions to inspire others. Although our work may seem very different on the surface, all of us are working to improve life for those around us, battle injustice, and create positive change in Kitchener-Waterloo.

The event will consist of a keynote speaker, sharing by local groups about their goals and projects, and collaborative visioning for the future of our community. Lunch is provided at no cost.

Let me know if you can make it!

Emily

EVENT: Community Meeting and Mobilization on RISING GRT TRANSIT FARES. Bus passes and tickets are going up by 10% on July 1. This will present a hardship for the main populations who ride the bus: low-wage workers, the unemployed, and those on assistance. An action group is forming to demand a halt to the increase and more subsidized fares to be made available.
