Annual Walk and Rally - Campaign for Adequate Welfare and Disability Benefits

Saturday, October 19, 2013 - 13:00 - 15:00
Rally flyer

The annual Walk and Rally will take place this year on October the 19th. The theme is "Inequality Hurts Everybody". 

The Rally's success over the years is due in large part to the contributions of groups in Hamilton and area that help us help those on the lowest rungs of the economic scale to find their voice and enable them to walk with each other in a show of support for each other.

This gives them a sense of empowerment -- they are not alone. 

This year's walk may possibly be the most visually powerful walk we've done yet.
