UPDATE: We put up these resources early on in the school strike movement in Canada when the school strikers had almost no web presence. Since then, things have changed dramatically.
To learn about national Canadian organizing please visit https://climatestrikecanada.org/.
To keep up to date on the Toronto School Strikes please follow the youth on twitter, facebook or instagram.
