COCo Note

By & For communities: COCo’s Par et Pour Forums wrap up this week

Guest post by Akki Mackay

June 6th, 2015 will mark the third and final forum held as part of By & For Us? The community at the head of the organization, an initiative focusing on the experiences of community organizations that are run by, or centre the voices of the community they serve.

By & For Us? has three main goals: for “By and For” organizations to learn from one another through dialogue and the sharing of experiences; for the people involved in these groups to create easily sharable resources relevant to themselves and other community organizations; and to build new relationships and networks between “By and For” organizations and activists in Montreal.
