Updated Agenda below:

What can you expect on Sunday morning besides meeting rad people who want to make a difference? Here's how it'll go down:

9:30AM: Doors open, light breakfast is served (veg/vegan options available)
10:00AM: Opening remarks and land acknowledgement by Amy Desjarlais
10:30AM: Panel discussion
11:30AM: Q&A with audience
12:00PM: Committee Breakaways


Are you:
Sick of political fat cats running City Hall?
Tired of empty promises to make change?
Fighting for social, economic, and environmental justice?

Join us for breakfast on December 10th to hear from an exciting panel of speakers to talk about emerging and alternative forms of local democracy and the political landscape in Toronto. This is an event planned in partnership with the University of Toronto Graduate Students' Union Race and Ethnicity Caucus.

Panel includes:
  • Barcelona en Comu representative Kate Shea Baird;
  • former Ward 7 Candidate Keegan Henry-Mathieu;
  • Ryerson Urban Planning Professor Pamela Robinson;
  • Indigenous knowledge keeper Amy Desjarlais, and
  • newcomer activist Sandrine Manikuze De-Vincent.

We will then discuss how to put this into action in the Toronto context where people of colour represent 51% of the city, but only 12% representation at City Hall. How does this under-representation affect how wealth is distributed and services are delivered? How do we ensure that “Diversity Our Strength” is more than empty slogan?

Stay after the panel to meet like-minded people and share stories & skills to organize for positive change.

A light breakfast and TTC tokens available!
