    The Social forum will be four days packed with over 400 workshops, many keynote speakers, a march and popular assemblies on themes such as Water, Mining Justice, Climate justice, Pipelines, Indigenous Solidarity, and more.

    Polaris will be contributing throughout by hosting workshops or collaborating with others. Here are a few things to keep an eye out for:

    5. Polaris will be attending and helping out with the “Mining Justice Assembly” as well as the “People’s Climate Assembly”
    Polaris and its partners will be involved in many other activities at the Peoples Social Forum and we hope that you can make it out with friends and family.
