#StatusForAll Migrant Rights Rally

Sunday September 20, 3 PM, Marc Serré office 

2914 Hwy 69 N, Unit 1, Val Caron, ON P3N 1E3
Take action now and on September 20, 2020 to call for full and permanent immigration status for all. Prime Minister Trudeau and the Liberal Cabinet are quietly developing a plan for COVID-19 recovery that they will announce on September 23rd. They will rely on other political parties, particularly NDP Leader Jagmeet Singh to support their vision to ward off an election. Join us on on September 18-20 to insist that COVID-19 recovery must include FULL & PERMANENT IMMIGRATION STATUS FOR ALL. Migrants, refugees, undocumented, students, workers, homeless, criminalized, sex workers and families must all be regularized. Decisions about our future are being made quietly in back rooms right now, we must get louder!

Join us in SUNDAY SEPTEMBER 20 as we visit Nicklebelt Liberal MP Marc Serré to deliver the message that our regional refugee and asylum seekers, international students, and migrant workers all deserve FULL AND PERMANENT IMMIGRATION STATUS.

Join us for our monthly action meeting and learn what we are doing to improve the lives of workers, and how you can be involved. This month, in addition to updates on our Migrants’ Rights work, our Paid Sick Days work, and our Youth Action Committee work, we unveil our new online Community Forum. Created by the Racism at Work group and the Youth Action Committee, the Community Forum is a safe environment for workers to discuss racism at work. The aims of the forum are:

  •  To provide a safe space for workers to discuss the reality of being a racialized worker in Sudbury, and the racism that is happening here. We want workers to understand: you are not alone. 
  • To educate and inform workers of their legal rights at work, and to provide information on how to address racism at work.
  • To create an understanding of the specific issues at play in Sudbury, in order to create an Eliminating Racism At Work information campaign targeting businesses and organizations in Sudbury. 

Prescription for a #SafeSeptember:
PAID SICK DAYS!
Rally and Action

Saturday August 29th
2PM

We have all seen cases of COVID spike when children return to school, and we are all worried about a Safe September. One of the best ways we can assure that we keep case counts low is by following the advice of doctors:  stay home if we are sick. But without paid sick days, workers have to choose between paying their bills, buying food and paying rent, or staying home.  That is not a choice that we should have to make. We all need Paid Sick Days now! #PaidSickDaysSaveLives

Join us for a rally in Memorial Park, followed by a short march to Tom Davies Square, home of the provincial offices here in Sudbury. We will use chalk and yarn to show exactly what happens when one sick child gets on a bus with 42 other students and then goes to their classroom of 24 kids. How far will COVID spread? Join us and spread the news that PAID SICK DAYS SAVE LIVES!
