November Updates and Events

Do not be daunted

Following the recent shooting at the Tree of Life Synagogue in Pittsburgh, this popular paraphrase of Rabbi Shapiro reflects both the sorrow and commitment to resist giving in to hatred and division that many of us have been grappling with in recent days.

We at The Stand have been watching world events unfold with the same concern as so many members of our community. Issues of climate change, the election of far-right governments in Canada and abroad, and political violence dominate the headlines and leaving many of us feeling overwhelmed.

As the gravity of injustice intensifies, so does our conviction to organize – building relationships and alternatives that foster hope and bring to life a better vision of the world built on justice and inclusion.

This fall, we continue our work to help build these alternatives by bringing together grassroots groups to better network, share resources, and work together to use our collective power for positive change on social, environmental, and economic justice.
