Action Speaks Louder

Action Speaks Louder is the bi-annual newsletter of the Ontario Public Interest Research Group at the University of Toronto. We publish articles about social and environmental justice advocacy and activism, with a specific focus on issues that affect members of the campus community. If you would like to see copies of our previous issues, please come by our office at 563 Spadina Crescent, room 101 or you can view our most recent issue and past issue on Issuu here.

We welcome anyone who is interested in joining the editorial collective for Action Speaks Louder please get in touch with us at actionspeaksloudertoronto@gmail.com. You do not need any prior experience with publishing in order to participate and we will provide the requisite training and mentorship. If you enjoy working on publications and/or are interested in learning more, Action Speaks Louder is a great opportunity to be part of a production process from start to finish and learn the editing and technical skills needed for publishing.

We publish two issues of the newsletter per year: a fall issue comes out in September, with the production process running throughout the summer and a winter issue published in January or February, with the production process taking place during the fall term. If you would be interested in writing for us about a particular political issue you are passionate about or a campaign you are working on, please write to us at actionspeaksloudertoronto@gmail.com for more information on the pitch process.
