On Saturday April 4th there are Marches for Housing across BC.
A Grand March for Housing is being organized by in Vancouver by neighbourhoods, communities and labour unions across the Lower Mainland. We are organizing a DTES contingent to highlight the struggles of residents of the DTES, the poorest postal code in Canada, who are most impacted by the lack of affordable housing, growing poverty and income inequality, inadequate welfare rates, as well as cuts to social supports particularly for single mothers, those living with mental and physical health issues, and those struggling with addictions. The DTES is also home to one the largest urban Indigenous communities who continue to live under the brutalities of racism, colonialism, and poverty. Join the DTES contingent of the Grand Housing March on April 4, show your strength and express your voice as a DTES resident, and demonstrate your support for the humanity and vitality of the DTES neighbourhood. All residents and allies welcome!
