STRONGER TOGETHER: ORGANIZING FOR POWER 2020
DELEGATES ASSEMBLY "From Visions to Victories for the Common Good"
Thursday Feb. 27, 7-9pm Registration 6:30
5238 Joyce St, Vancouver. Public Service Alliance of Canada, 2nd floor
Late last year the organizing cycle brought us to a period of evaluation. Now, Metro Vancouver Alliance is re-visioning.
Where does our collective energy lead us next? How will we get there?
Join veteran leaders of the Industrial Areas Foundation and Metro Vancouver Alliance for a look at the breadth and strength of our global movement for local empowerment. Come and see what organized people and organized money accomplish, in the hands of everyday citizens. Come to imagine how we might use them next, for a more equitable Metro Vancouver. Bring a companion from your organization!
