Volunteering with the Direct Action Network Niagara

Via the Direct Action Network Niagara Facebook Page:

"we're looking to hold another open organizing meeting next week, tues or thurs eve.

we've got a bit of a backlog of work and calls/emails to respond to, so we are hoping to do some outreach and build our capacity over the next few weeks to bring things up to speed. we have responded to several calls and met with several people to offer them assistance with shitty landlords, but we're still looking for more direct action related cases.

most of the group infrastructure and communications stuff has been built, so that's all out of the way.

right now we really need a few dedicated people who can volunteer about 4+ hours a week of their time, and who can make it out to meetings and actions."

if you have any questions or you or someone you know might be interested, please get in touch via: 

FB direct message, or
Email: directactionniagara@riseup.net
Phone: (905) 499-3858

Apply to Join the City's Equity and Inclusion Committee, Anti-Racism Committee or LGBTQ2+ Committee!

Applications are being accepted for the City's three new Advisory Committees:

IMPORTANT NOTE: To sit on these committees, you need to be a citizen or permanent resident of Canada. While these are an important step for the city, requiring people be official citizen's or permanent residents of Canada, does not make these committees open to everyone, rather actively excludes many who live and work in our region and are directly impacted the issues these committees aims to address. Hopefully once these committees start working, removing that requirement will be high on the priority list.

Applications are due July 5, 2019 at 4pm.

 

For more information about these opportunities or for support with you application, please see the

City of St. Catharines website.
