Grand March for Housing: Sat April 4

20090402-gm_posterThe Grand March for Housing is this SATURDAY, April 4 at 12:00 Noon.

Renters at Risk and WERA are West End sponsors and we encourage everyone in our community to attend!

The March has two starting points:

Westside is gathering at Peace Flame Park (Burrard and Cornwall/ 1st ave)
This group will head down Burrard, to meet the East group at Georgia, and march together one block to the Art Gallery for the final rally location. (Before you ask about Burrard and Davie, we have to encourage people to leave the West End to go to the starting location, they want as many people walking across the Bridge as possible for the media shots)

East Side starting point at Thornton park (Main and Terminal)
This group will walk to Main/Hastings to pick up a third group, the DTES group gathering at Carnegie Centre, and then the whole group marches together down Hastings to Burrard and Georgia, where they meet the West group to march to the Art Gallery together.

Please spend some time, just a few hours, doing a final push to leaflet your building and hand out leaflets at busy spots around downtown or everywhere your daily travels take you for work. This is not just a West End event, it is for the whole lower Mainland. We will also poster key locations like community centre bulletin boards, coffee shops and telephone poles.

If you want to volunteer to help promote the event email Sharon at
