We are making change and building a stronger labour movement that recognizes the struggles of all people facing inequality in the workplace and society. The Rise Up! conference is an opportunity for union activists to come together and explore equality and fairness for all.
We are calling on all of our members who have a passion for human rights, improving the lives of all Canadians and the future of the labour movement. Rise Up! welcomes CLC affiliate members who identify with one or more of our equity groups: Aboriginal workers, workers of colour, workers with disabilities, LGBT workers, women, and young workers. We ask that unions prioritize equity-seeking members to attend this conference; however, allies are welcome.
We can empower each other by acknowledging our struggles, celebrating our gains, and sharing our stories. As human rights activists, we celebrate diversity and use our collective power to create real change for all Canadians.
Let’s come together and build an inclusive movement.
