“Hello Friends of TEA!
I would like to invite you to a fun evening of networking, inspired discussion about where we are and where we want to go, and a preview of some of the changes happening at TEA.
As you know, it’s been almost a year and a half since the current council was sworn into office, and in that time significant changes have happened on the environmental front. Important environmental programs and services were under unprecedented threat. But thanks to the work of our team, TEA members, and our allies, we succeeded in stopping proposed cuts to those programs and services in January. Then, we witnessed a historic transit victory that will bring efficient, rapid transit to Toronto sooner rather than later. None of this would have been possible without the work and support of Torontonians like you.
It’s important to reflect on what this success means for us as community organizers and advocates for the environment, and to begin planning how to move beyond defending what we have toward building something better.
And as we switch gears from defending to building, TEA itself is at a turning point as an organization – and we’d like to give you a sneak peak at that transformation. We are reaching and engaging our members in new ways, spreading our roots throughout the city, and changing our look. As we work on growing our membership, we look forward to planning a new phase of building a greener Toronto for us all. And we need your energy and wisdom to do that.
So please join us on Wednesday, May 16th, 7:00 pm at Revival Bar at 783 College Street as we come together to relax and have fun while we map out our next steps toward building a greener city for all!
