Social Justice Drop in Club

The months of January through March have C.A.N. in the final quarter of our Housing Outreach Campaign Phase I. We are busy looking at the data,  planning the final forum and report, reaching out to landlords, and doing follow up meetings with people we talked to in communities around Lanark County.  This means we will not be having our regular weekly drop in meetings, as we wil be focusing on these more campaign oriented tasks

If you are interested in the drop in group, please phone Beth at 613-264-6428 x4 to find out what days meetings are scheduled.

The Social Justice Club, aka C.A.N. (Community Action Network) has meetings  Wednesday mornings from 10:00- 12:00 at the Table CFC. Participants meet to take action in their communities and to discuss current events, local issues and how to create the changes they want to make happen in their lives. Come for the meeting and stay to join us for lunch at noon. This club is geared to lower income community members and their allies in the struggle to erradicate poverty in our land of plenty and inequity.

Community Action Training builds the capacity of community members to become effective change-makers through individual coaching and group workshops. It brings together community members to learn how to take action on issues of poverty and other social, political, environmental and economic injustices.  

Learn to navigate the system and to advocate for yourself and others. This 12 week workshop will provide you with the tools to build confidence and community. Topics covered include:

  • Community Resources
  • Advocacy for Everyone
  • Introduction to Collaborative Communication
  • Critical Thinking

This group is open to all but gives priority to low income community members. Participants will receive a gift card for groceries for each session they attend. Graduates of the program are eligible to apply for open positions as Peer Advocates in the Community Advocacy Office.
