This coalition is open to everyone. You do not need to be a CUPE 4207 member to join. In the spirit of the diverse perspectives of collaborative organizing, we come together each with an equal voice to work toward decolonization and social justice for Indigenous Peoples. In keeping with the policies and practices established by CUPE National Aboriginal Council, we work on a consensus building model, a culturally appropriate approach to decision making and governance.

We have many more great events coming up and would love for you to get involved with us in any way you can.
