It is time to get together again! We had some challenges booking a location for this meeting and so we are in a new location. Sorry for the short notice, but we have a unique opportunity that we didn't want to miss. We have some new information and resources to share and we have some esteemed guests from an organization called Inter Pares visiting us as part of an international tour on Temporary Foreign Workers. For more information about Inter Pares and about the tour see:
Date: Wednesday October 24 @ 5:30pm
Location: St. John's Kitchen, 97 Victoria Street North, Kitchener
[*Note: Any food donations for St. John's Kitchen, for allowing us to use their space, would be greatly appreciated - they are a community kitchen that serves up to 300 meals a day with the work of approximately 100 volunteers]
Please consider carving out an hour of your time to welcome these visitors from Guatemala and beyond and learn about their work supporting workers.
We will begin with announcing our new website which provides health resources and information on migrant farmworkers - www.migrantworkerhealth.ca, followed by a welcome for our visitors and some time to hear from them, and then wrap up and informal discussion from 6:30pm. For those of you needing to get to other meetings, please feel free to just drop by for a short time if that suits your schedule better. Thanks again!!
