Hosted by the Social Justice and Equity Studies Graduate Program at Brock University, the annual Niagara Social Justice Forum includes a day-long programme of concurrent activities, including workshops, performances, exhibits and information tables in a fair-like atmosphere.
Each year the forum attracts a hundreds of people from both campus and the community, and explores a wide range of issues such as Palestinian rights, education, organizing agricultural workers, reclaiming Aboriginal identity, links between body image and self-worth, lesbian gay bisexual transgendered queer issues, feminism and food sovereignty. All events are proposed and organized through an open call to people and groups on campus and in the community committed to social justice.
The main goal of the Niagara Social Justice Forum is to build relationships between student groups, activists and community organizations working on social justice issues in the Niagara region.
Thank you for reading this story…
More people are reading rabble.ca than ever and unlike many news organizations, we have never put up a paywall – at rabble we’ve always believed in making our reporting and analysis free to all, while striving to make it sustainable as well. Media isn’t free to produce. rabble’s total budget is likely less than what big corporate media spend on photocopying (we kid you not!) and we do not have any major foundation, sponsor or angel investor. Our main supporters are people and organizations -- like you. This is why we need your help. You are what keep us sustainable.
rabble.ca has staked its existence on you. We live or die on community support -- your support! We get hundreds of thousands of visitors and we believe in them. We believe in you. We believe people will put in what they can for the greater good. We call that sustainable.
So what is the easy answer for us? Depend on a community of visitors who care passionately about media that amplifies the voices of people struggling for change and justice. It really is that simple. When the people who visit rabble care enough to contribute a bit then it works for everyone.
And so we’re asking you if you could make a donation, right now, to help us carry forward on our mission. Make a donation today.
