Who It’s For
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.
Let’s come together and build an inclusive movement.
