Green New Deal Town hall

Green New Deal Townhall

     Thursday, May 23rd from 6:30 pm to 9:00 pm  The Fernwood Community Centre Gym,
1240 Gladstone Avenue    

Here on Lekwungen Territories we’re joining hundreds of communities across the country to define what a Green New Deal in Canada should look like! Please join us on Thursday, May 23rd to be a part of this conversation!

As you may have heard a coalition of groups recently launched a campaign for a Green New Deal for Canada,  a plan to tackle climate change and inequality at the same time! This means meeting our climate targets by transitioning to 100% renewable energy and implementing the United Nations Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous People while creating good jobs and ensuring dignity and justice for all!

Towns halls are being organized across the country the week of May 20 to May 26 to crowdsource ideas for what a Green New Deal for Canada should look like. Folks from Rise and Resist, the Social Environmental Alliance, Canadian Union of Postal Workers 850, First Metropolitan United Church, Rethinking Economics Victoria, and Women's March Canada: Victoria Chapter and are organizing a town hall on Lekwungen Territories on Thursday, May 23rd and we want you to be there!

We need everyone’s help to define what a Green New Deal should look like in our community as well as hear from others what their visions are. Everyone is welcome -  the Green New Deal includes folks from all walks of life!

Where We Stand

1. People and the planet before profit.
The Social Environmental Alliance is committed to a world where the wellbeing of people and the planet takes priority over the accumulation of private wealth.
2. Respect for ecological systems.
We believe all human activity and social systems must operate within the limits imposed by ecological systems and with respect for non-human life.
3. Transformative social change.
Recognizing the dangers of catastrophic climate change, the injustice of colonization and imperialism, and the inhumanity of growing poverty in the midst of plenty, we pledge ourselves to the lifelong project of transformative social change.
4. Ecological and democratic socialist principles.
We aim to accomplish our objectives through the application of ecological and democratic socialist principles to public affairs and the governance of our communities.
5. Grassroots organization and action.
Committed to action and outreach, we are nurturing a community of organizers to mobilize the consciousness and confidence of ordinary people and forge alliances in coalition with social movements, cultural organizations and grassroots community groups.
6. Traditions inform practice.
We are guided by the best traditions of indigenous, feminist, co-operative, socialist, labour and environmental movements.
7. Democracy.
We embrace a participatory, pluralistic and emancipatory model of democracy.
8. Equality.
We believe in a classless society and in the inherent dignity and equality of all people on the basis of gender, sexuality, ethnicity, religion, age and ability.
9. Self-determination.
We recognize the right of indigenous and colonized peoples to self-determination.
10. Internationalism.
We embrace an internationalist perspective in foreign policy based on equality among peoples and the shared stewardship and fair distribution of the finite resources of the planet.
