Building Activism in our Workplace, Union and Community
Sign up for this course and help mobilize, motivate, inspire and re-energize yourself as an activist. Working people have changed our workplaces, our communities and our world through activism. Activism involves educating, mobilizing, organizing, listening and learning from our neighbours, co-workers and family members to challenge the powers that be, in order to create a world of democracy and social justice.
This course will touch upon a number of components of what it means to be an activist: the lessons of past and current workers' struggles in Canada and around the world. We'll practice flash mobs, music and art as a means for social change; public speaking, using social media and organizing meetings; practical tools and strategies; as well as purposes and methods of organizing to make change.
