Local Calls for Action
The negative effects of COVID-19 have disproportionately impact on many marginalized communities that were already struggling with less access to support and resources.
Signing petitions are a great way to remotely lend support to causes that you are passionate about! To support other community efforts and call for action here are some links:
- Fight COVID Racism Survey by CCNC Toronto Chapter
- Sign! COVID19 response must Leave no one behind by Migrant Rights of Canada
Toronto’s emergency measures have increased police/by-law officer powers to enforce social distancing. Consider signing this petition on the expansion of police powers (in particular, the mandatory identification production order that can disproportionally affect marginalized groups)
Change.Org is a great way to see what advocacy work is being done near you!
You can also look into other current calls related to calls for community support and advocating on equity and social justice issues related to COVID-19 from many diverse groups in the Toronto area online via this link
