For November's monthly dinner, Dr. Waaseyaa’sin Christine Sy will share her experiences navigating intersectional discrimination in the BC School System. Drawing from her background as a parent and educator, she will also discuss how educators can better equip themselves to engage with and support racialized students in the classroom.


Food With A Side of Community is a community dinner that takes place on the first Thursday of every month, in the downtown Greater Victoria Public Library (Community Room). We believe in the power of food and conversation to build relationships. Join us for our community gathering including dinner and featured guest speakers.

The event is free and open to everyone.

This event is happening on the traditional occupied territory of the Coast Salish peoples, specifically the Lkwungen nation. The Public Library is wheelchair accessible.
