Hold an Event
Inter Pares supporters across Canada often organize gatherings of donors and potential supporters. We are grateful for the past and future support of our donors who host and co-organize these events. Types of events to consider:

  • a gathering that is an opportunity to meet with Inter Pares staff, board members or counterparts;
  • a presentation to hear about Inter Pares’ work;
  • a film screening related to Inter Pares programs. Learn more about film screening ideas from Inter Pares;
  • a celebration of a life event, with an option to donate to Inter Pares as a gift alternative;
  • a benefit concert, workshop, or other activity for which the proceeds (e.g, price of admission) are donated to Inter Pares.

Come to an event
In collaboration with our Canadian and international counterparts, Inter Pares frequently organizes and promotes public events in Ottawa and across Canada focused on social justice issues.

Join an Inter Pares Solidarity Tour
In February 2016, a small group of Inter Pares supporters travelled to Guatemala for the second edition of our Solidarity Tour. For ten days, the participants explored and deepened their solidarity with Inter Pares counterparts in Guatemala by sharing experiences, building relationships, learning from one another, bearing witness, and working for change in one’s own context.
