We would like to invite you to participate in the upcoming “Organizing for Justice” conference which is being held in Ottawa from November 20th to 22nd. We are looking for workshop presenters, facilitators and panelists, as well as tablers at the information fair.

This conference is targeted to people in the Ottawa-Outaouais region who are involved and or interested in community organizing. The four main themes of the conference are: social justice; economic justice; environmental justice; and healthy communities.

The conference will span three days: November 20th to 22nd and will be comprised of a Thursday evening panel discussion; a Friday evening music and social event; and a Saturday all-day line-up of workshops, sessions and information fair, followed by an evening social. The Saturday will feature content in both English and French.

We are currently inviting applications for workshop session topics / ideas for Saturday, November 22nd. We are looking for sessions (either in English or French) to fit one of the following three themes:
— Skills/Tools for Effective Organizing;
— Anti-oppression Analysis and Practise; and
— Developing Common Vision, Strategy, Communication & Networking

Please consider contacting us if you are interested in presenting a workshop / session for this conference. If doing so, please include the following:
— 1-2 paragraph description of topic
— 1-2 paragraph description of your experience / qualifications regarding this topic
— whether you would be willing to present on own and/or with others (as a panel)

We ask that you respond by October 10th. Also, if you know of others who might be interested, please forward this information on to them.

We are hoping to be able to cover any transportation costs for presenters, and also possibly offer a small honorarium.
