Creating space for transformative conversations
Tackling Child Poverty in BC, May 6
One of every seven children in BC is living in poverty and two-thirds of them live in Metro Vancouver.
Join SFU Public Square for an evening of dialogue to raise awareness about child poverty in BC—an issue that falls to all of BC’s citizens to address. Together, we can move beyond defining the problem and begin to strategize possible solutions.
When: Monday, May 6, 7pm
Where: SFU Goldcorp Centre for the Arts at Woodwards, 149 West Hastings Street, Djavad Mowafaghian Cinema
Stephanie Cadieux, Minister of Children and Family Development
Bruce Ralston, Opposition Critic for Finance and Public Accounts, BC NDP
Carrie Gelson, Teacher, Seymour Elementary School
Paul Kershaw, Associate Professor, UBC
The event will be moderated by Fazil Mihlar, The Vancouver Sun
