About Our Chapter
Greater Toronto Area (GTA) for a World BEYOND War aims to provide a platform for education, local activism and advocacy on issues such as a fair and human foreign policy; rolling back Canadian contracts to US and NATO defense for weapons and machinery; divesting our national and corporate funds from weapons; advocating for policies that reallocate war dollars to human and environmental needs; urging our elected officials to end support for NATO and the continuing illegal wars abroad; and much more.
We’ll have access to World BEYOND War’s educational resources and organizing assistance to plan and promote events and campaigns in our community, with the goal of educating and mobilizing people to advocate for a world beyond war, one based on peace and demilitarization. We will convene at least 4 times a year for meetings and activities of our chapter’s choosing, such as hosting a World BEYOND War book club; organizing lectures, discussion groups, and film screenings; writing articles and doing research; petitioning, grassroots lobbying, and nonviolent protesting.
Our chapter coordinators are:
Dr. Peter Jones – Advisor and organizer, Drawdown Toronto and Design with Dialogue
Melissa Weale – Chapter coordinator, Mississauga / Ontario
Join fellow Ontario members in a networking conversation to check in with each other during these tough times. We meet over Zoom on the last Thursday of every month at 7:00pm Eastern Time. Community is the key to getting through any challenge, and coming together during these times of separation we need that connection. We can talk about our daily doings, what’s happening in the world, or something important to you. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org to register and send topics we can use to get the conversations started!
