Presentation: Essential, Exploited, Engaged, Organized: Migrants Organizing for Rights & Status

COVID-19 has revealed and exacerbated existing inequalities in our society. Migrant and undocumented people have faced immense levels of exploitation, denied emergency supports and healthcare and yet been deemed essential. In response, a cross-country movement of migrants has begun to organize from farms to factories to colleges and the streets. 1 in 23 people in Canada are migrant or undocumented, this presentation traces how we got here, and what we must do to build a stronger more unified working class with equal rights and permanent resident status for all.
