[Workshop] Know Your Rights: Freelancer Edition
January 21, 2020 at 6:00pm - 7:30pm ESTFree
A Workshop for Freelancers in the digital domain
Un atelier pour pigistes dans la domaine digitale
(français suivra bientot)
In this free workshop, we’ll cover the most important worker’s rights for freelancers. There will be a Q&A period following the presentation, so bring your questions about contracts, working conditions, and your rights as a worker! Afterwards, all are welcome to stay, chat, and find out a little more about what we are up to.
The workshop is located at QPIRG Concordia (2100 Guy, Montreal, Suite #205), near Guy-Concordia metro.
The event will take place on the traditional territory of the Kanien’kehá:ka. The Kanien’kehá:ka are the keepers of the Eastern Door of the Haudenosaunee Confederacy. The island called “Montréal” is known as Tiotia:ke in the language of the Kanien’kehá:ka, and it has historically been a meeting place for other Indigenous nations, including the Algonquin peoples.
In 1680, the French government mandated the Jesuits to steal this territory from the Kanien’kehá:ka Nation in order to make the land available for settler use and ownership, and settlers continue to benefit from this theft.
We believe it’s not enough just to acknowledge the keepers of this land. We encourage everyone to get informed and educated, and to actively resist colonialism and neo-colonialism in the many forms it takes, and in the diversity of forms that resistance can take, too.
The space is wheelchair accessible. Please contact us if you have any accessibility needs or concerns.
