Event description

Description

You are invited to join City Councillor Kristyn Wong-Tam and the Institute for Change Leaders’ Board of Directors in the celebration of its first anniversary on October 17!


Over the last year, the Institute for Change Leaders has trained over 2200 students, brought over 300 organizers from across Canada together at our CanRoots conference, recruited and trained over 30 trainers, conducted over 16 full weekend trainings, and launched trainings in Niagara, Waterloo, Thunder Bay, Brampton, and Ottawa.

At this event, we will hear from past participants, and introduce a course on communication campaigns for social change. Our keynote speaker will be Christopher Torres, Organizing Director for United We Dream - the famous campaign that pushed President Obama to introduce the DACA (Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals) programme. Christopher will speak about how the DREAMers used the Ganz methodology the Institute teaches to win Americans hearts and minds in order to achieve the goal of normalizing the status of 800,000 young people.



Doors open at 11:30am, a light lunch will be served at 11:45, and speakers start at 12:10pm
