In 2012, we co-founded the Solidarity City Network to organize to declare Toronto Canada's first Sanctuary City. In February 2013, we won a policy and in June 2014 implementation steps were established.
Right now we are working with Toronto City staff to ensure their promise becomes a reality and supporting other cities across Ontario to pass similar policies.
