    Belonging in the Housing Crisis

    Join MVA members for a community discussion exploring the connection between the housing crisis and our ability to belong in this city. 

    Over the past 5 years, MVA member organizations have consistently identified unaffordable housing and social isolation as the top pressures facing their members. It is time for us to do something about it. In order to act powerfully, we need your voice in the conversation.

    We are inviting all members, allies, and prospective members to share your stories, connect with others facing this this challenge and explore 2 proposals for action.

    Please invite your networks.

    This luncheon will be an opportunity to build relationships with clergy and lay leaders from various faith traditions across Metro Vancouver. Together we will explore the values that motivate us to act together for the common good.

Come with an appetite to relate with one another, and we promise that you will walk away with more than enough material for a great sermon or reflection!
