Disruption! Decades of resistance, and decades more to come!
For several decades, OPIRG-Toronto, OPIRG-York and the York University Graduate Student’s Association have been agitating and demonstrating for social change. OPIRG-Toronto and the Graduate Student's Association are reflecting on 30 years, and OPIRG York on 20 years, of student organizing, grassroots education and action on social and environmental justice. We have been disrupting the normal run of things since our inception, and we don’t plan to stop anytime soon! We invite you to Disruption! An anniversary party recognizing decades of resistance, and decades more to come!
Join us as we celebrate our achievements and reflect on our involvement in so many amazing and influential campaigns over the years. What better way to end two packed weeks of DisOrientation than sharing stories and dancing the night away with friends and comrades! With performances from LAL, Progress, Maiko Watson and Wolf J, this night is sure to be one to remember! DJs Zehra and Saira Chibber will end off the night and keep you on your feet with their sweet beats. Take a look at the archived posters and materials from 30 years of Toronto's political work, and don't forget to grab your anniversary swag: silk screened birthday t-shirts, buttons, patches and a collaborative mural, to be produced the night of the party. Good food, drinks and great friends!
