Social Justice Drop in Club

The Social Justice Group, known as the Community Action Network (CAN) seeks to foster the empowerment of people living in poverty and their allies, who wish to have their voices heard, through collective organizing and action. Participants meet to discuss current events & social justice issues and to work together to create positive change within the community. This club is geared to lower income community members, but allies are also welcome.  
 
The Community Action Network meets at the Table on Wednesday mornings from 9:30-11:30.  Meetings at this time focus on the issue of housing, a continuation of the Housing Outreach Campaign that CAN has been working on since January 2016. These meeting include a free healthy breakfast or lunch. The group meets at least twice a month, but does not meet every week.  Since location and times may vary due to activities and events the group is participating in, please check the Table calendar of events to find out which weeks the group is meeting.
 

If you are interested in more information about, or in  joining the Lanark County CAN meetings, or need transportation help to attend please contact Beth at 613-267-6428 x4.
