New at The Stand this month... Thanks to a generous donation of progressive books from one of our members, we will soon be launching the Radical Lending Library for all of our members! Stay tuned for updates...
In the meantime, scroll on to see what's happening this month...
If you like the looks of what we do and the work we support, join us by becoming a Treaty 6 Justice Collective Member and consider booking our space for your next meeting. Every booking helps us get a little bit close to our vision of purchasing a community owned building to house justice seeking groups and organizations.

In these strange days when we can hardly believe what we see happening south of our border, our very existence as artists makes a demand of us to frame a response. This will be Persephone’s. Tickets: $15 (3 Nights Only).Read more
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.
Please read on to learn more about our plans to use these funds from this campaign.
