Nancy MacBainEvents, News, Political Action

The Political Action Committee of CUPE 3906 would like to invite you to:

in soli?: A panel, open discussion and social event about what it means to be “in solidarity”

When: Thursday February 2nd, 7-9pm
Where: Artword Artbar, 15 Colbourne Street (at James N.  & Colbourne)
Cost: Free!

As a key catch-phrase for activists within and beyond organized labour, ‘in solidarity’ is often taken as a self-evident and non-contentious statement. This event aims to unpack this phrase by talking more about how we think about and practically approach ‘solidarity’ work. We will be hearing thoughts from community activists in Hamilton on how they approach being ‘in solidarity’ with others in the work that they do. Panelists’ experiences span topics such as: anti-poverty support, labour organizing, Indigenous solidarity and mobilizing against community injustice broadly defined. We hope the event can generate collective discussion and self-reflection on our various strategies and the overlaps and/or tensions that might exist between different forms of solidarity.

Panelists include: Alex, Niki, Jamila and Michelle and the artwork of Roberto Lavidez will be on display for the evening

There will be a cash bar and menu with light homemade meals available for purchase.

This event is free and open to all. Click here for more information
