Update From Today’s ‘Safe Space Now’ Action; 5 Women Arrested

This is happening RIGHT NOW in Toronto. OCAP is working tirelessly for the basic human rights of shelter and safety for some of the most marginalized groups of the homeless population – Women and trans folk in our city. WE ARE LITERALLY DYING! It is long past time for the city of Toronto to live up to it’s promises

“Indeed, earlier this year, OCAP and its allies pressed the City to open a
24 hour safe space drop-in. After a campaign of community mobilization, the
City relented and acknowledged the obvious need that such a space would
meet, promising that a women and trans folk’s space would open before the
start of the winter. But after endless committee meetings and other
stalling tactics, it seems that the City has forgotten its promise. OCAP
staged an action today, November 25, which is also the UN Day for the
Elimination of Violence Against Women, to highlight the City’s lack of
movement on this crucial issue.”
