Dear friends, allies and fellow organizers,
No One Is Illegal - Toronto has recently been forced out from our storage space in the building we shared with LIFT (Low Income Families Together). The building was repossessed by the city and many community groups have lost their space as well. We are writing today with an urgent call for space and financial support.
Since 2002, we at No One Is Illegal - Toronto have stopped multiple deportations, fought and won against unjust immigration laws, and worked with you to ensure safer access to schools and anti-violence against women spaces for undocumented people. We've mobilized against the G8 and G20 Summit, have joined the Toronto Stop the Cuts Network to stop the Ford austerity agenda, and continue to struggle to decolonize ourselves and stand with Indigenous land defenders on Turtle Island.
We do this work without any staff, an office space, or any permanent agency, government or foundation funding. So we are turning to our communities today for support and solidarity. Please sign up to be a monthly subscriber to No One Is Illegal - Toronto by visiting http://toronto.nooneisillegal.org/support and downloading the form. We are looking at trying to get 100 people to sign up for $20/month. You can also make a one-time donation on this page.
Right now, we would also like to find a space where we can access our stuff 24/7 and have it arranged in such a way as to make the most use of it. In our humble dream world, we would love something with our own door, a few walls, some sunlight, and enough space to potentially have an office (as well as storage for a 10X5ft shelving unit).
Please let us know if you know of any such space, ideally free, or at a very low cost, or if you are interested in sharing space so that we could come up with something affordable together. We can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org
