For over eight years now, ACORN Canada members have been building and organizing. They've run strong campaigns at the local, provinical, national and now international levels. There are nearly 50,000 of them in cities and towns all across the country.
In neighborhood chapters across the country, members are doing things to celebrate ACORN Canada's eighth birthday. Here are two:
In Toronto, members will gather with friends and allies at Dufferin Grove Park on Saturday, August 11th for a picnic from 10 AM to 2 PM. They'll be accepting donations, sharing food, enjoying the park and playing games.
In Ottawa's Brittania chapter, members are having a BBQ on Saturday, August 18th at Brittania beach. It'll be a lot of fun and the food will be pay-what-you-can.
At both events, all are welcome!
