Building Activism in our Workplace, Union & Community

Duration: 
5 Days

Sign up for this course and help mobilize, motivate, inspire and re-energize yourself as an activist.  Working people have changed our workplaces, our communities and world through activism.  Activism involves educating, mobilizing, organizing, listening and learning from our neighbours, co-workers and family members to challenge the powers that be, in order to create a world of democracy and social justice.

This course will touch upon a number of components of what it means to be an activist:  the lessons of past and current workers’ struggles in Canada and around the world.  We’ll practice actions, music and arts as a means for social change; public speaking, using social media and organizing meetings; practical tools and strategies; as well as purposes and methods of organizing to make change.
