Changing the Conversation: Reflective Empathy and Public Discourse on Social Housing
March 3, 2020

New Westminster Public Library (Main Branch Auditorium), 716 6th Ave
Description: Public discussions of social housing often perpetuate stigmas around poverty and homelessness. Meanwhile, the voices of people who need social housing are not heard. This three-part event series aims to encourage more reflective and empathetic discussions by centering these voices through first-person narrative and the arts. Part 2: Listening to Different Voices in the Process This event will feature the perspectives of individuals who have experienced poverty and homelessness, exploring how these voices can be better represented in public dialogue. Our partner for the event will be Megaphone's Speakers Bureau. Next Up: Part 3 - March 27th: Reframing the Narrative through the Arts
