Upcoming Events

Fall Assembly: Thurs. October 29 at 7pm.

This assembly will launch our public action on the City Budget and our action to advance Truth and Reconciliation through the creation of Indigenous Liaison Officers, as such it is an important Assembly to show up for.

Our Alliance has had some great success stories in advocacy this year and we will gather online to mark these achievements. But, even more importantly, we will come together at this Assembly to advance the conversation about Calgary's budget; its relationship to the future of our city and the way in which our city and our police force can move towards Truth and Reconciliation, through the expansion of the Indigenous Liaison program. Mayor Nenshi is scheduled to speak among many others. I do hope you can join me for this moving event.

Here is the link to the registration page for the October 29th assembly.

Please share this with like minded friends. Thank you!

Our Psychological First Aid Training is full. If you are interested in attending a future training please email Jodi at [email protected] and once we have enough individuals interested, we will plan a future training.


Fundraising Training: Mon. October 19 at 7pm.

Money is a key ingredient towards turning the dreams and potential of your non-profit, synagogue, church and this Alliance into a flourishing reality. There is much good work to be done in our city and our organizations, that requires capital.

If you're interested in learning how to apply principles of community organizing to the process of raising money for Calgary Alliance’s fund-raising campaign, this training is for you. As a kick off training for the Calgary Alliance’s fund-raising campaign, it is intended both for leaders who want to participate in this campaign and for leaders from our member organizations who want to learn how to raise money to support the mission of their organizations.  

Free for all Calgary Alliance for the Common Good Members.
