Friends and supporters,
We have reached a critical moment in the development of our organization, The Treaty 6 Justice Collective.
Over the past two and a half years, T6JC has been operating The Stand Community Organizing Centre as a hub that builds social movements by informing, supporting, and connecting people to work towards social, environmental, and economic justice.
We've been supporting activism through access to our meeting and event space, educational events, skills-building workshops and mentorship, material and financial support, and through active organizing campaigns to address issues that impact our community.
We've been doing all of this on nothing but volunteer power, community partnerships, and rental income from meeting and event bookings at The Stand.
It’s time to take the next big step forward to expand our capacity and increase the impact of the work that we do to support our community change-makers. We are kicking off a fundraising drive to reach a minimum of $1500 in monthly, sustainer donations by the end of the summer.

Squarespace? Shopify? or something else? What about collecting donations for your organization, recruiting volunteers, selling swag online, or learning more about and reaching your supporters?Read more
