We are launching a brand-new initiative: the solidarity quilt. This involves a pilgrimage organized at both the national and international level, where our members and our partners in the countries of the Global South are invited to collaborate in sewing a giant solidarity quilt that will travel the country from west to east (from British Columbia to Ontario) and east to west (from Newfoundland to Quebec).
