Imagine a space:

  • Connecting organizations, community leaders, and concerned individuals;
  • Offering shared knowledge and resources to amplify existing community organizing work;
  • Attracting new activists and creating new initiatives.

People come to this space for meetings, to organize campaigns, to work in a shared space, to attend training workshops, or to browse the books in the new location of Turning the Tide bookstore.


Why support The Stand?

The Stand – Community Organizing Centre is a partnership between Turning the Tide Bookstore and Treaty 6 Justice Collective, a new organization working to enhance and support collective efforts advocating for social, environmental, and economic justice in our community. Treaty 6 Justice Collective was created as a non-profit organization to manage the governance and operations of The Stand.

We are living in a critical political period for social and environmental justice, a period that demands coordinated and supported efforts on many issues, ranging from local to international audiences. Saskatoon has always been in the forefront pushing for justice, but we have been losing the organizational and physical spaces where people used to come together and work on these campaigns.

Please consider becoming a monthly sustainer that can help keep Saskatoon working towards a progressive and just future.

We are starting modestly. If we can raise $500/month, our rent is covered. If we can raise $1,000/month we can subsidize costs for many low-budget groups. If we raise more than that, we will start working with our partnering organizations to develop workshops and training opportunities related to issues and campaigns that need increased support and capacity.

Benefits of becoming a monthly sustainer include:

  • Invitations to community events hosted at The Stand
  • Membership in the Treaty 6 Justice Collective
  • 3 hours of co-working, meeting or event space/month.

Your on-going support will help make The Stand a community organizing hub that will benefit all of Saskatoon.

In solidarity,
Treaty 6 Justice Collective, Board of Directors
