DISORIENTATION WEEK: September 22 - 29, 2023
DisOrientation 2023 will kick off with a two-day Intergenerational Activist Gathering: Rooting our Activism in the Big Picture and Organizing Across Generations, consisting of participatory learning, sharing and relationship building. This collaborative event with OPIRG Toronto aims to bridge the gap that so often exists between student activism and community activism taking place throughout the city.
