WHO WE ARE
Vivimos Juntxs, Comemos Juntxs (VJCJ) is a migrant-led group of former and current undocumented people, as well as allies, who are fighting for a city where we have power over the resources and services we need to live a dignified life.
• To increase awareness of the rights of undocumented residents in Ontario by creating an open space to discuss several topics relevant to migrants (e.g. the impact of COVID-19 on access to income, housing, education, food, child care, recreation, identification and other municipal services).
•To address the immediate material, financial, and social needs of migrant communities.
• To build a “sanctuary” beyond the limits of the city policy that is rooted in communities defending and protecting each other from the state (i.e. CBSA).
• To create a migrant-led, migrant-decided space where our communities can imagine and work towards building a city where we have power over the services and resources we need to live a dignified life.
