Please join us on Thursday, February 3 when the Chapman Discussion Series presents Affordable Housing for All? Homelessness and Legal Activism in Vancouver.

This panel discussion will explore the systemic inequalities and injustices built into Canada’s public policy that impact the availability of affordable housing for low-income and marginalized persons. Our panelists will provide diverse, informed perspectives on the housing crisis in Vancouver’s Downtown Eastside and beyond. More information on topics and panelists is available here.

UBC students, faculty and community members are welcome to bring their questions and comments to this engaging event, which takes place on Thursday, February 3 at 5:30 p.m. in the Lillooet Room, located in the Chapman Learning Commons on level three of the Irving K. Barber Learning Centre. Refreshments will be served.

Live-in for Literacy is taking place again this year on the second floor foyer of the Irving K. Barber Learning Centre. Three students are “camping” at the Learning Centre between January 27 and February 3, raising funds to build schools, libraries and other educational infrastructure in developing countries.

This year, the goal this year is to raise $27,000 through participating universities for the construction of six libraries in India. You can find out more about this inspiring initiative here.

UBC Library is proud to welcome the Live-in for Literacy initiative once again – please come by the Learning Centre and show your support!

Note: this year’s Live-in for Literacy initiative was covered by Global BC television news.
