At The Stand, we’re entering 2019 more motivated than ever to nurture hope and solidarity amongst the people and groups seeking social, environmental, and economic justice.
In the last few months, we’ve seen a wave of new faces signing up as members, volunteers, and sustainer donors. If you'd like to get more involved this year, send an email to email@example.com to learn more about the groups and campaigns you can join to take action on climate justice or a range of other social and economic justice issues.
In 2019, we’ll be hosting regular gatherings for coalition building amongst groups working on various issues, starting with our Annual General Meeting and potluck on February 10, 12:00 -3:00 pm (location TBD).
Use The Stand’s Community Calendar to keep track of these gatherings and other justice-related events happening around Saskatoon.
