Join PHM friends for a people's health assembly!

The People’s Health Movement in the US and in Canada continue planning for a North America People’s Health Assembly! The assembly will take place in Montreal on 15 August 2016, immediately following the World Social Forum.
The focus of the gathering will be to build relationships, to strategize ways forward and to plan actions for activists and organizers in the movement: it will not be an academic conference. While we will not necessarily agree at the end of the day, we would like to be able to be speak to and about each other in common languages, develop framings we can use when working in alliance, and start to build a coherence to health justice movements across the continent.
We’re hoping the day will serve as a visioning, a launchpad to reinforce a cohesive, coherent movement for health justice across our networks. We have a dizzying array of people who are wanting to come: from people reclaiming traditional systems of care, to those working on environmental health concerns; from anti-austerity organizers, to anti-imperalist activists; from those seeking access to care regardless of migration status, to unions of public servants.
As we prepare for the Assembly by shaping a flow for the day, we would very much like to have your input to ensure the day responds as much as possible to your interests. Please let us know what would you like to do with the time you have with us. We also wonder if people might be interested in starting conversations beforehand over email and Internet calls in order to make sure time together is used more efficiently.
Please let us know if you can join us and what your interests are by
responding to this questionnaire

    1. Hi Jaye! It’s great to hear about your interest in the Assembly! Please register to let us know more about you, your work, and what you hope to get out of the day. And that way we’ll have your contact information too! Thanks a lot!!

    1. Hi! Anyone is welcome to join, but unfortunately we don’t have funding to sponsor anyone. We hope to be able to bring people in virtually, though! If you are interested in listening or participating, go ahead register to get more information. Please be aware, though, that this PHA-NA will focus on health justice and challenges in the North American (US & Canada) context.

  1. Hi! I will be at the WSF beforehand and am looking for a place to stay on Saturday and Sunday (13-14 August). Any ideas? Thanks!
