Toronto’s Poor, A Rebellious History
April 04, 2017
Toronto’s Poor, A Rebellious History a wide-ranging conversation with the co-author Gaetan Heroux (with Dr. Bryan Palmer) exploring the history and the profile of poverty in Toronto and the struggles against it.
Given the current economic uncertainty and hard times that people living on the margins and the young people are facing, we are delighted to have the chance to share Gaetan and Bryan’s perspectives discussed in their remarkable book, documenting and demystifying poverty in Toronto. Gaetan and Beric German, Co-founder of Toronto Disaster Relief Committee, will lead the conversation and share their respective knowledge and years of anti-poverty grassroots organizing experiences across the city.
Monthly thematic Conversation Circles are organized by volunteer labour, supported by the Seeds of Hope Foundation, to generate discussion on issues of interest to wider Danforth neighbourhood.
Time: 7:30 pm
Venue: Carrot Common, Room 212
Location: 348 Danforth Ave Toronto, ON
Categories: Social Change, Social Justice, Alternatives
