Join us for food, speeches, drumming, music, painting and FUN!

On Saturday, May 21st, Our Homes Can’t Wait is organizing a community paint-in party at 58 West Hastings. The City wants to build a gentrifying social mix project at 58 W Hastings, with only a fraction of the units going to low-income people on welfare and pension.

Come on May 21st and join us in sending a message to City Hall that we are united and we won’t be policed out, priced out or pushed out of the DTES! We need decent housing we can afford!

All ages are welcome and non-toxic paints will be available for children to use. There will be chairs and benches available for seniors. All speeches will be translated into Chinese.

The event will be taking place on the unceded coast salish territories of the Musqueam (xʷməθkʷəy̓əm), Tsleil-Wauthuth (Səl̓ílwətaʔ/Selilwitulh) and Squamish (Skwxwú7mesh Úxwumixw) peoples.
