Summertime momentum!

At the half-way mark of 2019, $15 and Fairness fighters have already organized over 100 actions, and trained new leaders across Ontario. A big thank you to everyone who has hit the streets with us this summer! We know it’s been a hot and rainy summer, and we really do appreciate all of you who joined us to fight for fair wages, paid sick days and fairness at work.

From beach parties in Ottawa to workers' rights workshops in Bracebridge, and from outreach in Scarborough to organizing meetings in North Bay our movement is growing one conversation and one supporter at a time. We launched a new chapter in Mississauga and we are preparing for Pride outreach in London. We are also organizing side-by-side with climate and migrant justice networks to support a Green New Deal that puts good jobs and fair wages at its centre and that provides justice for Indigenous communities and migrants. In short, we are fighting for a Green New Deal that leaves no one behind.

Thanks to you, our movement is getting stronger by the day. And there are even more events and actions coming up where we can keep our momentum going. We hope to see you at one of these upcoming actions!
