Race & Gender In The Upcoming Federal Election

  • Greater Victoria Public Library - Central Branch 735 Broughton Street Victoria (map)

Join us as we discuss the role of race and gender in the upcoming election. How important is representation? What are your concerns about gender inequality, climate justice, indigenous rights, immigrant rights, healthcare, and housing? Should our vote be strategic?
