No one is untouched by the current circumstances, but the impacts of COVID-19 will not be shared equally. Some of our neighbours have seen their jobs disappear. Part-time and temporary workers may be facing the impossible question of whether to pay for food or rent. They may have to visit a food bank for the first time ever. Those with mental health challenges will no doubt be triggered. Frontline workers supporting our most vulnerable will face increased demands and stresses.
That’s why we’ve created the Better Toronto Coalition to connect concerned residents directly with learnings from nonprofit leaders and help direct your support to where it’s needed most.
On Thursdays at 8:00am EST we’re connecting interested Torontonians to the front lines – virtually – so we can learn together. Register now for the next webinar on Thursday April 9 when we’ll discuss the pressing issue of women and safety during isolation. We’ll hear from Pamela Hart, Executive Director of Native Women’s Resource Centre of Toronto, Deepa Mattoo, Executive Director of Barbra Schlifer Commemorative Clinic and Heather McGregor, CEO of YWCA Toronto. Please check your inbox or junk mail for your confirmation email.
