For just and compassionate communities….
The Greater Edmonton Alliance (GEA) is an alliance of faith, labor, health education and community organizations dedicated to building a base of everyday civic leaders to effectively stand for change they want to see in their communities.
As we near the end of 2021 GEA needs your support more now than ever before. After nearly 2 years of the covid pandemic, communities and organizations are struggling to return to a pre-pandemic normalcy. In the last year GEA held an action assembly and a meeting with the Edmonton city executive committee concerning the adoption of the Canadian National Standard for Psychological Safety in the Workplace as official policy. With a new city council we will continue to push for adoption of this policy. GEA has developed a Living Wage Educational Program which we are rolling out in December to our communities. This course will be supporting GEA’s work with the Alberta Living Wage Network which has done a recalculation of living wages in a dozen Alberta communities and are seeking employers who will pay living wages. Our leaders have begun the work to create a process where community members can Wrestle with the Truth of Colonization and take action as called for by the Truth and Reconciliation Commission.
And we want to be on that journey with you. As an Alliance of 17 organizations and over
25,000 members, we are building a greater team so that we can be advocates for a just and
compassionate city, as well as build leaders in our community.
