2022 municipal election work

  • Jin on Metro Morning re what next Council should do about poverty [also in the poverty section]
  • worked to convene residents, community groups, and organizations 
  • held events (workshops and in partnership with UWGT, Bold Ideas for Change panel series) link to Bold Ideas videos
  • supported shared calls to action – e.g., A City for All
  • shared resources and information on our website
  • produced resources including speaker roster, fact sheets, election toolkit
  • mention vote pledge? 211/1,500 goal
  • offered voter engagement grants for residents and grassroots groups

We offered $500 grants to Toronto residents/resident groups who wanted to engage their communities in the municipal election, e.g., by hosting a community dialogue, information session, all candidates debate, vote pledge/registration drive, or vote party.

  • Election results: Jin on Metro Morning day after [can’t find recording!]
  • her message was that we need more than hope to get us out of the city's multiple crises. used the analogy of a house in disrepair to talk about how the city needs investments to “keep our family safe.”
