Discounted Histories: Retail and Trade History in Toronto
Discounted Histories is a multi-site exhibition that explores the movement of goods, services, and ideas that form Toronto's retail landscape.

Time:  6:30 - 9:00 PM
Venue:  Toronto Media Arts Centre
Location:  32 Lisgar Street, Toronto, ON

The Fight to Improve and Rebuild Public Healthcare
On the campaign trail to the 2018 Ontario election, Doug Ford raised problems with the provincial health care system and promised his constituents that "help is on the way." Now that Ford is Ontario's conservative Premier, he is not helping the health care system, but putting it-and this vital public service-on the chopping block. Ford is placing our health and the health of our families in the hands of those whose primary concern is to profit, not to meet our needs. How do we stop this? How can we organize to collectively improve rather than privatize and destroy this public good? The last time anything threatening as this happened in Ontario, the labour movement responded with the Days of Action. What can we learn and creatively adapt from that experience?

Join Natalie Mehra and Michael Hurley for a discussion about Ford's threat to the public health care system in Ontario, and what we need to do to secure, rebuild and improve public health care for all.

Time:  3:00 PM - 5:00 PM

Under Pressure: 5 Ideas for Housing Now
Rents are at an all-time high, newcomers and young people can’t afford to live in the city, and people who need subsidized and supportive housing are being left in the cold. From affordability problems and precarious housing to homelessness across the region – housing is a big issue in the GTHA, that requires a government response.

We have new political leaders, strategies, and housing talk at all 3 levels of government – so what’s next? National Housing Week, Nov 19 – 23, is an opportunity to talk about these issues.

In a panel discussion, moderated by Dr. Kwame McKenzie, CEO of Wellesley Institute, housing experts with a range of experiences tackle these issues head-on and share their #1 idea for what the city, province or federal government should to do right now to address the housing crisis.

Time:  7:00 pm - 8:30 pm

Universal Children's Day
United Nations Universal Children’s Day was established in 1954 and is celebrated on November 20th each year to promote international togetherness, awareness among children worldwide, and improving children's welfare.

November 20th is an important date as it is the date in 1959 when the UN General Assembly adopted the Declaration of the Rights of the Child. It is also the date in 1989 when the UN General assembly adopted the Convention on the Rights of the Child.

Since 1990, Universal Children's Day also marks the anniversary of the date that the UN General Assembly adopted both the declaration and the convention on children's rights.

Mothers and fathers, teachers, nurses and doctors, government leaders and civil society activists, religious and community elders, corporate moguls and media professionals as well as young people and children themselves can play an important part in making Universal Children's Day relevant for their societies, communities and nations.

Universal Children's Day offers each of us an inspirational entry-point to advocate, promote and celebrate children's rights, translating into dialogues and actions that will build a better world for Children.

The War Against Middle East Peace
Returning from recent trips to the region, Toronto Star political columnist Martin Regg Cohn reconnects to the Middle East bureau he left behind as a foreign correspondent, when the peace process held out hope. Then as now, countries are in conflict. Today, people are at war with themselves, within their own countries. The Hundred Years War has evolved from territorial battles into internecine and sectarian strife. Not just Jews against Muslims or Christians, but all against all — not least pious versus secular. Even if the political path seems elusive, other pathways are opening up. How do Canadians connect the dots in a foreign minefield?

International Day for the Elimination of Violence against Women
One of the most devastating human rights violations

Violence against women and girls is one of the most widespread, persistent and devastating human rights violations in our world today.

Gender inequality persists worldwide. Achieving gender equality and the empowerment of women and girls will require more vigorous efforts, including legal frameworks, to counter deeply rooted gender-based discrimination that often results from patriarchal attitudes and related social norms, as stated by the UN Secretary-General, in his latest report on progress towards the Sustainable Development Goals.

ATHABASCA - reading and discussion
ATHABASCA is a provocative new drama about global ecological disaster, the extractive industries, and the politics of violence, written and performed by multi award-winning theatre artists Richard Greenblatt and David S. Craig. A marketing executive for a major oil company is suddenly confronted in his office by a desperate journalist turned environmental activist determined to do whatever it takes to shut down the Athabasca Oil Sands. As a fierce life or death struggle between the two unfurls, each holds the other responsible for the looming environmental disaster that threatens us all. The moment we live in makes the exploration of the relationship between theatre and politics more important than ever before. Greenblatt and Craig will read their play, and the political questions it raises and the role theatre can play in contemporary social change will be explored through an interactive Q&A with the audience.

CEP Presents: The Future of Transportation
The transportation sector accounts for 30% of greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions in Canada. In order to achieve Canada's national carbon reduction targets of reducing GHG emissions by 2030, drastic and effective measures from a variety of stakeholders are needed to work towards the decarbonization of our transportation sector.

This includes: electrification/ EVs, better transit infrastructure, incentive programs, more stringent policies, and technological advancements in emerging sectors like alternative fuels and autonomous vehicles.

Join us on Tuesday, November 27th as our expert panelists weigh in on what lies in the future of Canada's transportation sector, discuss what a truly decarbonized system would look like, and what it will take for us to get there.

The Nicaragua Uprising: Updates, Debates, and Voices in Exile
Nicaragua, one of Latin Americas lowest income countries, has experienced dictatorship, revolution, neoliberalism and authoritarian populism all in the space of forty years. In April of this year, Nicaraguan university students initiated an uprising against the authoritarian regime of president Daniel Ortega that seemed to hold the possibility to redefine the country. Streets exploded with support for students after the unexpectedly lethal government response to peaceful protests against imposed social security reforms, and the movement quickly grew into a widespread but uneasy national alliance. Despite the opposition and its substantial international support, after months of deepening state repression the restoration of "democracy and justice" in Nicaragua seems distant. As the struggle within Nicaragua wages, activists are forced deeper underground and the numbers of exiles grow. Meanwhile, debates in North America continue to rage between so-called anti-imperialist Ortega supporters and the critical anti-authoritarian left.
These debates expose troubling contradictions in twenty-first century internationalism- illustrating the perils of what Rohini Hensman refers to as 'indefensible' anti-imperialism. In this session, long-time Nicaragua solidarity activist-scholar Dr. Lori Hanson will offer an update on the Nicaraguan struggle, highlighting voices from exiled students, and opening a dialogue on what the North American debates reveal about the nature of solidarity today.

World AIDS Day
"The world is well on its way to meeting the target of ending the AIDS epidemic by 2030… On this World AIDS Day, I call for a renewed commitment to finish what we have started and to make the AIDS epidemic a thing of the past." — Secretary-General António Guterres

Everyone, regardless of who they are or where they live, has a right to health, which is also dependent on adequate sanitation and housing, nutritious food, healthy working conditions and access to justice. The right to health is supported by, and linked to, a wider set of rights.

Ending AIDS as a public health threat can only happen if these rights are placed at the centre of global health, so that quality health care is available and accessible for everyone and leaves no one behind.

International Day for the Abolition of Slavery
Slavery is not merely a historical relic. According to the International Labour Organisation (ILO) more than 40 million people worldwide are victims of modern slavery. Although modern slavery is not defined in law, it is used as an umbrella term covering practices such as forced labour, debt bondage, forced marriage, and human trafficking. Essentially, it refers to situations of exploitation that a person cannot refuse or leave because of threats, violence, coercion, deception, and/or abuse of power.

In addition, more than 150 million children are subject to child labour, accounting for almost one in ten children around the world.

International Day of Persons with Disabilities
The annual observance of the International Day of Disabled Persons was proclaimed in 1992, by the United Nations General Assembly resolution 47/3. It aims to promote the rights and well-being of persons with disabilities in all spheres of society and development, and to increase awareness of the situation of persons with disabilities in every aspect of political, social, economic and cultural life.

Building on many decades of UN’s work in the field of disability, the Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities, adopted in 2006, has further advanced the rights and well-being of persons with disabilities in the implementation of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development and other international development frameworks, such as the Sendai Framework for Disaster Risk Reduction, the Charter on Inclusion of Persons with Disabilities in Humanitarian Action, the New Urban Agenda, and the Addis Ababa Action Agenda on Financing for Development.

International Volunteer Day (IVD) mandated by the UN General Assembly, is held each year on 5 December. It is viewed as a unique chance for volunteers and organizations to celebrate their efforts, to share their values, and to promote their work among their communities, non-governmental organizations (NGOs), United Nations agencies, government authorities and the private sector.

Apart from mobilising thousands of volunteers every year, the United Nations Volunteers (UNV) programme contributes to peace and development by advocating for the recognition of volunteers and working with partners to integrate volunteerism into development programming.

World Soil Day
Soil is the upper layer of earth, a mixture of organic and inorganic matter, in which plants grow.

It is a finite natural resource. On a human time-scale it is non-renewable. However, despite the essential role that soil plays in human livelihoods, there is a worldwide increase in degradation of soil resources due to inappropriate management practices, population pressure driving unsustainable intensification and inadequate governance over this essential resource.

World Soil Day 2017 activities aim to communicate messages on the importance of soil quality for food security, healthy ecosystems and human well-being.

International Day of Commemoration and Dignity of the Victims of the Crime of Genocide and of the Prevention of this Crime
In September 2015, the United Nations General Assembly established 9 December as the International Day of Commemoration and Dignity of the Victims of the Crime of Genocide and of the Prevention of this Crime. The 9th of December is the anniversary of the adoption of the 1948 Convention on the Prevention and Punishment of the Crime of Genocide (the “Genocide Convention”).

The purpose of the day is to raise awareness of the Genocide Convention and its role in combating and preventing the crime of genocide, as defined in the Convention, and to commemorate and honour its victims.

In adopting the resolution, without a vote, the 193-member Assembly reiterated the responsibility of each individual State to protect its populations from genocide, which entails the prevention of such a crime, including incitement to it

Human Rights Day
Human Rights Day is observed every year on 10 December – the day the United Nations General Assembly adopted, in 1948, the Universal Declaration of Human Rights. This year, Human Rights Day kicks off a year-long campaign to mark the upcoming 70th anniversary of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, a milestone document that proclaimed the inalienable rights which everyone is inherently entitled to as a human being -- regardless of race, colour, religion, sex, language, political or other opinion, national or social origin, property, birth or other status. It is the most translated document in the world, available in more than 500 languages.

Drafted by representatives of diverse legal and cultural backgrounds from all regions of the world, the Declaration sets out universal values and a common standard of achievement for all peoples and all nations. It establishes the equal dignity and worth of every person. Thanks to the Declaration, and States’ commitments to its principles, the dignity of millions has been uplifted and the foundation for a more just world has been laid. While its promise is yet to be fully realized, the very fact that it has stood the test of time is testament to the enduring universality of its perennial values of equality, justice and human dignity.

The Universal Declaration of Human Rights empowers us all. The principles enshrined in the Declaration are as relevant today as they were in 1948. We need to stand up for our own rights and those of others. We can take action in our own daily lives, to uphold the rights that protect us all and thereby promote the kinship of all human beings.
