We are excited to once again offer events in honour of Black History Month in February. In partnership with the National Congress of Black Women Foundation and the Vancouver and District Labour Council we will be co-presenting two panel discussions on February 9 and 16th at 7:00pm. Each event will run approximately 90 minutes at cover two topics. Through our presentations and resources, we hope to encourage you to look for the truths, find the facts and face the feelings.
