Leadnow's 2024 Community Survey Results
Thursday, February 1, 2024
Leadnow is a democratic, bottom-up organization. We take our direction from our community. As part of that process, every year we survey our active supporters to invite them to share their top priorities for the year, and to ask them questions about key issues of the day. This year's annual survey has just wrapped up, and the results are summarized below.

Over 8,693 people responded in whole or in part to the survey. We offered respondents the choice to do an extended portion with questions about them, their media habits, and their vision for Leadnow; about 6,840 opted to complete the extended portion.

This response rate is slightly below the average for Leadnow community surveys since the start of the pandemic.

What we accomplished in 2023
Wednesday, December 6, 2023
There’s no question that 2023 was a tough year. Between the worst wildfire season in Canadian history, an ongoing affordability crisis, and a crumbling healthcare system, we’ve all faced unearned hardships.

But in spite of it all, we came together – time and time again – to fight for the just, equitable, and climate-safe future we all deserve. That perseverance is what makes the Leadnow community so special – and none of it would be possible without you.

From lobbying for real climate solutions to defending our healthcare system to calling out corporate greed – the Leadnow community had our work cut out for us this year. And we rose to the challenge with countless inspiring campaigns. Here’s a snapshot of what we achieved together: read more »
Stop the violence

As part of our response to the Israeli-Palestinian violence, we feel compelled to share some educational resources in relation to this complex issue. If you want to see a list of actions you can take, please scroll down to the bottom of the post.

We’ve all been impacted by the unimaginable violence and suffering in Israel and Palestine since October 7.

At Leadnow, we condemn all violence and war crimes against civilians and grieve for the thousands of lives lost in Israel and Palestine and millions displaced in Palestine. We unequivocally condemn anti-Semitism, Islamophobia, and racism. Our vision of a world where human rights are protected, and human life is sacrosanct is fundamental to our organization. Every day, we are driven by our core values of justice, equality, freedom and democracy in all of our work. read more »
What Trans Kids Need
Thursday, September 21, 2023
As part of our response to the anti-trans rallies across the country on September 20, 2023, we are sharing some educational resources. If you want to see a list of actions you can take, scroll down to the bottom of the post.

When I came out as non-binary to my parents, I did it in person. They did their best to be supportive. But I could also see confusion on their faces – so I wrote them an email later on to explain some things to them about trans people that they just didn't know.

This blog post I am writing is a lot like that email, because it's clear to me that a lot of people are confused about gender, trans people, and what trans kids need.
