We are looking for volunteers to assist with a panel discussion  on Friday, October 17th at the UBC Longhouse.

  • The afternoon panel discussion will be from 12:30-2:30pm

The purpose of the event is to educate and stimulate critical reflection on past food-related injustices in IRS and find ways to promote living together in a civilized and respectful society.

– Other volunteers will need to be at the Longhouse by 11:30am and stay until ~3:00pm. Tasks will involve general set-up of the venue (seats, tables), welcoming guests as they arrive, and clean-up of food areas following the reception.
