Community Outreach

There are two primary ways we work to fulfill our social justice goals: one is to have community singalongs, and the other is to organize a number of benefits for other social justice and non-profit organizations each year. These performances raise funds for the partnering organization and increase the awareness and understanding of choir members about a particular aspect of social justice work in Toronto. These events are very much a partnership – both the choir and the beneficiary organization contribute to the organizing, promotion, and the benefit program.

Organizations that Common Thread has partnered with in the past include:

  • L’Arche (Toronto)
  • War Resisters Support Campaign
  • Grandmothers to Grandmothers/Stephen Lewis Foundation
  • Cecil Community Centre
  • Pathways to Education – Regent Park
  • LabourLink
  • Sistering
  • Hotel Employees and Restaurant Employees International Union
  • Amnesty International
