— We are in a political moment of change and possibility. Strong left candidates like Bernie Sanders and Jeremy Corbyn are breaking through in the U.S. and U.K… We’re seeing that radical demands can be a path to political power and profound change. We’re seeing fresh energy and inspiration among progressives around the world – we’re seeing a movement beginning.
We’re ready to bring that movement – and the tools and ideas to make it happen – to Canada.
The Leap and Courage are partnering to bring key organizers behind the Sanders and Corbyn campaigns, and other radical progressives, to Ottawa this February. Courage to Leap will offer a unique, behind-the-scenes look at how the combination of grassroots mobilization and bold, progressive policies ignited a movement that transcends national boundaries.
What happens in the Canadian mainstream has global consequence. We have the opportunity and the obligation to reshape progressive politics in this country. Join us on February 15 to get inspired, get mobilized, and get ready to leap together and bring the political revolution to Canada!
