This week's podcast is reflective. As many of us have been. To keep the conversations that have started for many, including me, in the past days and weeks, we need to stay creative, and find our own niche where we can make our greatest impact for the better.
I'm from Vancouver. I want to be part of the solution, not an active or silent part of the problem. I've been tracking down resources and organizations every day that I can learn from and work with to help end constant and systemic racism. Today, I've spent some time on the site of the Hogan's Alley Society, based in my hometown. I urge you to read about their work and make a donation of any size if you are able to.
The Hogan’s Alley Society advocates for Black Vancouverites who have endured the legacies of urban renewal and their erasure from the official historical narrative.
Through our iniatives we hope to build the capacity of racialized and marginalized communities to participate in city building.
The podcast is available here:
As always, you can also find it on Apple & Spotify by clicking the icons in our site player.
Happy listening, and don't forget the power a glass of wine can have to help you reset when you need to. We've got a lot of work to do.
