Toward a sustainable future for Stratford Ontario

Thursday’s meeting was wonderful. So many supportive and concerned people! You can find the link to the unedited recording below, and we will send out sections of it through social media and the newsletter.

The big announcement for us was our new project with the Small Change Fund, which will help us work for democratic reform in our own municipality, and at the same time we’ll be able to share what we have learned with other groups in Southwestern Ontario, through webinars, resource creation, and on-the-ground participation. The Small Change Fund will help us raise money to support these activities, and we think we can get a great deal done, with your support. Our Small Change project was discussed in Thursday’s meeting, and we’ll be talking about it in the newsletter as well.

So the project officially starts today, Friday July 5. If you’d like to help us out, click this link to go to our new fundraising page.
