The Stand Community Organizing Centre is a place for people and groups to take a stand by sharing knowledge, resources, and mutual support to work towards social, environmental, and economic justice.
Taking a stand starts with being informed.

Fall is here and we’re back with monthly updates on The Stand and other initiatives for social, environmental, and economic justice.
Scroll through to the bottom for some truly exciting and important events on Climate Justice, including the Just Transitions Symposium in Regina.
But first... Let us tell you what we accomplished at The Stand over the summer!
We've been soaking up Spring newness at The Stand - new members, new groups using the space and equipment, and a new meeting room!
It's a great space for groups of 4 - 8, depending how cozy you like to get, and the base rate is just $10/hour. Message us at email@example.com to book it!
Wishlist: We're looking for a few "new to us" items for the space: collapsable round table (3-5 foot diameter); office desk (3-4 feet wide); portable dishwasher; 2 water pitchers; pulldown projection screen to mount on ceiling; digital projector. Please let us know if you have any of these items to donate.
Our Board Members
We're fortunate to have a strong team of board members who work hard for social, environmental, and economic justice both at The Stand and in the community. Last week, two of our members had their work in the news:
Shane Partridge, along with the rest of the staff and members at STR8-UP, hosted the Provincial Gang Strategy Forum. People form 80 organizations and government agencies joined the STR8-UP members and staff to identify solutions to gangs. Check out this article from CBC or this video from CTV. This powerful music video by STR8-UP members Jorgina Sunn and Shane Taysup was also debuted at the forum.
Jack Hicks, has been working with the Federation of Sovereign Indigenous Nations to create the Saskatchewan First Nations Suicide Prevention Strategy. The strategy was released and approved last week. Read more here.
