Youth Union Movement Event 1 September 2007 Toronto, ON

An exciting event is coming up.
The Toronto Youth Union Movement has organized an amazing event which is to start of our Labour Day weekend. It is a concert at Nathan Philip Square, on Sept 1st, at 1pm, with local up-and-coming performers and some known ones also. Here and there we will have a short speech, but the focus is on the performances.

We agreed that a cultural event is one of the best ways to reach youth. The goals of the event are to connect labour and community youth, continue to build a youth network in the city, promote Y.U.M., bring labour issues to youth as they will relate to it, and to have an amazing event.

Some of your unions and locals have donated funds to this event. Thank you for the generous support. There will be a program on the day recognizing our sponsors.

Would you be so kind as to share it with your contacts and networks, and asking them to share it with their contacts and networks? Also please encourage any youth and really anyone to come out to the event. Thank you. We need all the help we can get in promoting this event. It is a first and getting youth to come out is an exciting challenge; but I am hopeful. We have a great line-up of performers.
