Tonight (Sept 13) we are hosting a solidarity vigil to call for better housing for migrant workers. We’ll be meeting at the site of bunkhouse that burned down near Oakland, Ontario this past summer. Please meet us at 607 or 613 Burtch Road, Mount Pleasant, Brant, Ontario. See press release for more details.
Also tomorrow (Sept 14), there will be a community/classroom discussion from 2:30-4pm at Wilfrid Laurier University’s Brantford Campus, Room OD-110, hosted by Professor Janet McLaughlin. The event will include a short film clip and panel discussion featuring documentary filmmaker Aaraon Diaz, migrant worker Gabriel Allahdua, and Lisa Diamond, a local resident who has led community efforts to support workers whose area bunkhouse was destroyed by a fire.
We’re very excited for our upcoming leg of the caravan in Guelph and Waterloo.
