March With Us – Labour Day 2016
Join MARL as we stand in solidarity with our friends in the Labour Movement!
We’re excited to participate in the 2016 Winnipeg Labour Day March. We as Manitobans have a unique history with labour, the Winnipeg General Strike of 1919 being a prime example. Things we enjoy such as the 40 hour work week, minimum wage, and paid holidays are all a result of the hard work of labour activists. We at MARL believe it is important to celebrate the labour movement for all the work they have done fighting for and protecting worker’s rights throughout Manitoba’s history.
Meeting Location: Memorial Park, Winnipeg, MB – Across from the Manitoba Legislative Building
Meeting Date & Time: Monday September 5th – 1:30PM
Picnic hosted by the Winnipeg Labour Council to follow at Central Park.
Free T-Shirts for everyone who joins MARL at this important event, please email us in advance with your shirt size: email@example.com
In Our Eyes : Photo Voice Gallery Reception
In partnership with From Here & Away and the Canadian Muslim Women’s Institute, MARL is proud to host a Gallery Reception in celebration of the In Our Eyes PhotoVoice Project.
The Gallery Reception is a celebration of the work compiled by a group of newcomers who used disposable cameras to tell stories of their experiences as new Canadians.
The PhotoVoice Gallery Reception will be a powerful event to help people understand and connect with the issues most relevant to newcomers in Winnipeg. The goal of this project is to support the self-empowerment of participants by providing an opportunity to speak of their experiences, connect with others in their community, and to educate and raise awareness in the wider Winnipeg community.
Date: Friday, September 16th
Time: 6:00PM – 9:00PM
Location: Winnipeg Art Gallery – 300 Memorial Blvd, Wpg MB
