By Keith Yee in Community Events on August 31, 2017

Our good friends at the Richmond Poverty Response Committee are holding the first-ever “Richmond Poverty Action Forum” on Thursday 28 September from 9 am to 4 pm at the Sheraton Vancouver Airport Hotel.

The Action Forum brings together Richmond residents experiencing poverty, people working on issues related to poverty, and decision-makers for an open dialogue about transportation, food & water, health, housing, and safety issues.  It is a day-long event of sharing and growth for all participants in a non-judgmental environment.

To attend, please visit this website and fill out the form.  You need to RSVP by 5 pm on 14 September 2017.
