Action Through Specialized Teams
Specialized Teams (STs) in the GTA have been formed with the purpose of carrying out specific types of focused work. The STs co-exist with traditional structures such as community and youth groups, networks, and fieldworkers.
Here are the active STs in the GTA!
We are a group of passionate activists in the GTA working to raise awareness about how business affects human rights worldwide, with a specific focus on the impact the Canadian extractive/oil and mining industry has on Indigneous communities in Canada and abroad.
We do everything from writing, emailing, approaching MPs, tweeting governments or CEOs, to online letters and petitions, and to taking to the streets to rally, march and educate the public. Meetings include updates on issues we are currently working on, plans for future actions, and occasionally guest speakers with expertise in a particular area.
With our offices closed due to COVID -19 the team is currently meeting online the first Monday of the month between 7:30pm – 8:30pm EST. To join the team/online meetings and to find out what we are working on please contact us below.
For new and potential members, AI offers an Orientation session where you can find out about our human rights work, how are we structured, our mandate, how you can get involved and what is going on in AI Toronto.
Please note that due to Covid 19 our offices are closed and there are no orientation sessions at the moment.
