On Tuesday February 5 a new broad-based social housing coalition will
launch a major campaign to make social housing a central issue of the
upcoming BC provincial election. Come join the campaign rally in the
main VPL meeting room to hear voices from communities throughout BC
facing the housing crisis.

The campaign rally for SOCIAL HOUSING NOW will feature speakers from
the grassroots Stands for Social Housing that are held in communities
around BC every Saturday. There will also be researchers, advocates
and experts on the housing crisis and its social housing solutions,
and representatives of the communities hit hardest by the market
housing crisis – Indigenous people, women and single mothers with
children, migrants and especially those with temporary or no
immigration status.

More than a community forum, this rally will be the first mobilization
of a social housing campaign that will change the discussion about the
housing crisis in BC and influence the platforms of the major parties
in the May election. Come and learn about the depth and breadth of the
housing crisis. Come and learn about the current governments’ threat
to social housing as an idea and a right. Come and get involved in the
fight for social housing.
