June 6th Walk-in!

Frankland Walk In Final-1.jpg

HOW TO PARTICIPATE? Join Frankland Teachers, Parents and Students at Broadview Station at 8:10 am to walk together along Danforth Avenue to school. Meet other parents at Danforth and Logan starting at 8:15 am to welcome the parade. Parents and kids can join us at any point along the Danforth. Bring noisemakers, and signs.

WHY PARTICIPATE? The attack on public education is part of a larger attack on our shared public interests: libraries, health, legal aid, social assistance, climate protections, public transit, workers’ rights, and Indigenous rights. These are all interconnected. We need solutions that centre on caring for each other and the planet, and living with justice and dignity for all.

On June 6th, join over 150 schools in this province wide WALK-IN! #walkinforeducation

A community-wide yard sale is being organized to commemorate the July 22, 2018 tragic shooting on the Danforth (#DanforthStrong).

Three goals:

  • Support. Provide an opportunity to ease into what will be a challenging time of year as well as a platform for discussion and peer support.
  • Promote Change. Help advocate against gun violence. Sellers are encouraged to donate a portion of their sale proceeds to the Coalition for Gun Control (the charity recommended by representatives of the victims/families).
  • Eco Fun! Have some fun purging household treasures by finding them new homes and diverting them from landfills.

Three ways to participate:

  • Sell. Register as a seller to be included on our interactive map (subject to neighbourhood boundaries).
  • Donate. Contribute to our Danforth Community Sale GoFundMe page to support #DanforthStrong fundraising initiatives/the Coalition for Gun Control.
