GRAN Happenings: Hello Friends 2020 -- Save the Date!

An enthusiastic group of GRAN volunteers is busy finalizing plans for GRAN’s upcoming national gathering, Hello Friends 2020.  This year we will be gathering in Toronto at Ryerson University from June 8 - June 10.  Those who have attended this bi-annual gathering in the past know that it provides a rich opportunity for friendship, learning, and reigniting our shared passion for justice.  We always come away inspired, strengthened, and energized. This is a terrific opportunity for those new to GRAN to dive in and learn a lot quickly, and for long-timers to renew ties with GRANs from other regions and to learn new things too!  Hello Friends is by far our most valued GRAN event for providing face-to-face connection to share and explore new ideas together and to offer input into GRAN’s vision and priorities going forward.

Program details will be coming soon.  In the meantime, save GRAN a spot on your June calendar and please do consider joining us!
