Saturday, August 31, 1:00-3:00 pm - Labour Day Banner & Button Making at Workers Arts and Heritage Centre
Led by WAHC Youth Council members Sahra Soudi & JoJo Harley

This workshop will introduce the Unite Against Racism campaign with a short introduction video, followed by a brief outline of the systemic tactics that divide all working people from uniting for just and decent work lives. Handouts will be available for more information. After the introduction, you can make your own banners and buttons to take with you to the Labour Day parade & picnic on Monday Sept 2nd! All supplies will be provided at the workshop, just bring yourself and a friend!
