The Centre for Social Justice and Good Works (the ‘Centre’) is hosting Talk On The Walk ~ creating positive change together on Thursday, August 18th, 2016 from 6:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. The Centre invites the community to join at the ESSAR Centre to discuss topics with local leaders so that will help to create positive change together for our community.
The Centre envisions an inclusive, welcoming community in which people are inspired, empowered and supported to work together to transform society for the greater good through works of charity and social justice.
“To create positive change together, we need to come together as a community. This event is an opportunity to provide solution-focused ideas and feedback that can be used to implement projects that promote good works,” explains Christina Coutu, Executive Director of the Centre for Social Justice and Good Works.
Discussion leaders and community champions will gather input on subjects such as entrepreneurship, youth, community mobilization, employment, and community safety. The data collected will be compiled into a report that will be released to the public in hopes that some of the project ideas will be implemented within the community.
Sonny Spina, Director of Public Relations for Norpro Security and Investigations will be leading the discussion on community safety. “There are people in our community with great ideas. We need to share these ideas with each other so that we can encourage projects that create economic growth. A united community is a safe community” he says. Additional speakers include Rory Ring (Chamber of Commerce), Donna Hilsinger, Josh Ingram (Queenstown Association), Karol Rains (Sault Community Career Centre), Jason Naccarato (Northstar Consulting) as well as federal, provincial and municipal representation.
