About 25 people came together in Kitchener-Waterloo last night to launch a local chapter of the Council of Canadians, Canada’s largest social activist group.
Those gathered learned about the organization, ongoing campaigns, and the vital role that chapters play in taking action for social and environmental justice. A strong interest was expressed in organizing locally around water issues, electoral reform, healthcare, and in solidarity with social movements globally.
The chapter will hold its first meeting next week. Contact regional staff member Mark Calzavara (firstname.lastname@example.org) for information on how to get involved.
