Coalition Invitation – Open Meeting
January 8 @ 7:00 pm
Dear community activist colleagues,
Millennium for All would like to invite you to an open meeting on Wednesday, January 8, 7:00 pm at the University of Winnipeg, Room 2M70, to strategize a day of action and other community responses to the city budget cuts that are coming.
Like you, we’ve organized community members, written letters, and talked to councillors privately. And like you, we’re extremely alarmed that the proposed cuts have advanced beyond the Executive Policy Committee to the wholly unaccountable Budget Working Group, which has the power to pass the budget without any further consultation with our communities.
It is our feeling that the groups opposing this austerity budget need to come together, that we will be stronger together. Several community groups, public employees, and concerned residents have told us they would appreciate and support a coordinated day of action. Beyond that, we don’t have a specific proposal, but would like to open space for us to collectively strategize and plan together.
Will you join us on Wednesday, January 8, at 7:00 pm at the University of Winnipeg, Room 2M70 to make a plan for building power and pushing back these cuts? If you can make it, please rsvp to email@example.com, and share this invitation widely with anyone who opposes cuts to our city’s life-sustaining services and who share a commitment to building a just Winnipeg, free of ableism, homophobia, misogyny, racism, and transphobia.
