ACORN Canada: Organizing 101

Educational or How to / 5 minutes /

ACORN (Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now) Canada is membership based national organization of low- and moderate-income families. We have over 70,000 members organized into twenty neighbourhood chapters in nine cities across Canada. We believe that social and economic justice can best be achieved with a national active membership who are invested in their organization and focused on building power for change! We spend the majority of our resources going door to door in low and moderate income bringing people together to fight for social and economic justice! We have members in every province across he country and have won several important victories including: Provincial Payday Lending legislation working in coalitions to raise the Minimum Wage in Ontario to $11/hour plus indexing to inflation and many tenant right victories. Other national and provincial campaigns: Remittance Justice, Digital Access to Opportunities, Healthy Homes and Disability and Social Assistance Rights. We are looking to reach low and moderate income families across the country. This video focuses on our door to door work.
