Social Justice Drop in Club

The Social Justice Group, known as the Lanark County Community Action Network (LCCAN) 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.  
 
LCCAN meets at the Table on the 1st and 3rd Wednesday mornings of each month.  Breakfast is from 9:30-10, with the meeting going from 10-11:30.   Meetings at this time have a focus on the issue of housing, a continuation of the Housing Outreach Campaign that LC/CAN has been working on since January 2016. 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 at a different time or place..

Bring your old but still good, or your outgrown winter clothing and gear (boots, hats, skates) to a free clothing swap.

This time we will have a double feature for twice the viewing and thinking fun.

The group is very busy with many things  and the regular members are all busy with other things this week(domestic violence training, refugee outreach, orphaned children fundraising...), so we are cancelling the Oct. 21st meeting due to small numbers.  Hope to see you on the 28th.
