Afrofest is coming!
Afrofest 2009 will take place in Queen’s Park (behind the Ontario Legislature), on Saturday and Sunday, July 11 & 12.
Afrofest is Canada’s largest African music event, and one of North America’s largest festivals of African music and culture.
It is also Amnesty International’s largest annual volunteer event in Toronto. Once again, we will have a significant presence at Afrofest, with general information on AI and actions on African issues.
We will be meeting thousands of people, and we will require 20-30 volunteers to do a three-hour shift over the course of the weekend.
Don’t know anything about African issues? No problem!
We will be holding a pre-Afrofest orientation meeting for volunteers on Thursday, July 9 at 7:00 pm in the NEW Amnesty offices at 1992 Yonge Street.
Can you help?
Oh, and one more thing—there’s food, crafts and music!
Afrofest is fun!
