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.WHENMay 15, 2019 at 7pmWHEREJewish Community Centre

When: 19th February 2019, 11:30 A.M.-1:30 P.M.
Location: St Mary’s Catholic Parish, 5251 Joyce Street, Vancouver (at Joyce Skytrain Station, parking available)
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.
What’s on the menu? We will feed you lots of good stories about the meaningful impact that broad based faith organizing has had on Canadian society. (There will also be food, of course!) 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!
