Tuesday Aug 22nd at 6:30pm - 8:30pm Tabling & Prep for City Council Meeting
Belmont Parklet Space - next to Tim Hortons at 524 6th St
- No-Fault Eviction Tabling & Leafletting session
We are going to set up an info table on stopping no-fault evictions and talking to people in the area. How do you engage people in the issue & not annoy them? First we’ll go through our materials to understand the issue of no-fault evictions and do a quick teach-in on tips in talking to people you don’t know. We’ll have some seasoned organizers if you want to shadow them and learn the ropes. This is a great opportunity for those that want to feel more comfortable engaging deeply into our community on these important issues.
2. Prep for speaking about Air Conditioning at New West City Council
At the same time and place, we’ll have an organizer leading a discussion on the Monday Aug 29th city council meeting. At this meeting, Councillors Nakagawa and Henderson will be asking staff to research the feasibility of mandating air conditioning within rental buildings. If you have been suffering during the heat and want to speak at the council meeting you should come to this group and get help crafting your message and signing up to speak!
