Cross-Country Day of Action: Unite Against Racism!
Details:

The Migrant Rights Network is calling on you to help organize direct actions on March 21st, 2019, the International Day for the Elimination of Racism. Migrants and refugees are being forced out from their homes in unprecedented numbers globally. Here in Canada, anti-immigrant protests and racially motivated attacks are on the rise. Meanwhile, right wing politicians who use anti-immigrant and racist rhetoric are getting rewarded with thousands of votes. If we simply stand still, there is a real danger for further rise in populist racism in the lead up to the federal election in October. To get involved and host your own action email info@migrantrights.ca, and check out the Facebook event here.

National Day of Mourning
Details:

Last year, 131 B.C. workers died from a workplace injury or disease. When you lose a loved one, the pain never goes away. Across Canada, April 28 has been designated the Day of Mourning. As workers, families, employers, and communities come together at ceremonies held around the province to remember those who have lost their lives to work-related incidents or occupational disease, let’s renew our commitment to creating healthy and safe workplaces.
