On September 18 – one day before the Canadian Parliament returns – we gathered in the thousands to demand equal rights and permanent resident status for all undocumented people, migrant workers, students, families and refugees. A historic regularization program is on the horizon, but we need to take to the streets to ensure that no one is left behind.
Sunday was a grand success. During the peak period of the event, we had as many as 70 people who came out to share their stories and join their voices in the call for Status For All. The conversation wasn't just limited to the people on the mic. As I wandered around, I heard meaningful conversations happening between attendees. Several attendees from the neighbourhood came by to check us out, stayed for the food, and then best of all, asked to sign the petition.
This was the one, ALL OUT!
We had fun, a variety of cultural dishes, performances, and speakers throughout the afternoon event!
