Climate Justice Toronto Organizing Meeting
February 10 @ 6:00 pm - 8:30 pmFree
We have less than 10 years, according to the IPCC report, to completely transform our economy and society to avert further climate catastrophe. Yet Canadian governments refuse to take meaningful systemic action, and instead opt to spend billions in public money to fund more pipelines while doling out billions more for dead-end corporate welfare subsidies. Meanwhile, those at the frontlines of the climate crisis, namely Indigenous, racialized, and poor communities, are being neglected by decision-makers.
Climate Justice Toronto (CJTO) is organizing to unite young people from all movement backgrounds in the GTA to send a message to our governments and the broader public: the only people who will be making decisions about our future is us, the people affected, and especially the most marginalized among us. Through solidarity and alliance-building, direct action, creative storytelling, and electoral organizing, we will forge a just transition towards a decarbonized economy, and a Green New Deal for all.
Join us at our biweekly Climate Justice Toronto organizing meeting on Monday February 10th from 6:00-8:30 PM. If it will be your first meeting, please come at 5:30 for orientation.
