Event description

Description

First United Church Community Ministry Society and the Schein Foundation proudly present the 2019-2020 Roddan Jubilee Lectures dedicated to conversations on the housing crisis in Vancouver and beyond.

The first event of the series features P.E. Moskowitz, author of How to Kill a City: Gentrification, Inequality, and the Fight for the Neighborhood, at 7pm, Saturday October 19, 2019 at Christ Church Cathedral (690 Burrard St).

Gentrification has been presented as an unexplainable and unsolvable phenomenon: cities change, people move out, rent rises, new coffee shops open. But there's something much more nefarious going on behind the scenes. In their talk, P.E. Moskowitz will elucidate the forces responsible for the corporatization of cities, and what we can do to stop them.

Our program continues in 2020 with presentations from:

  • Stéphan Corriveau, Executive Director, Community Housing Transformation Centre in Quebec, at 3pm, Saturday February 29, 2020 at Shaughnessy Heights United Church (1550 W 33rd Ave); and
  • Stephanie Allen, Hogan’s Alley Advocate and Associate VP of Strategic Business Operations & Performance at BC Housing, at 7pm, Tuesday April 21, 2020 at Morris J. Wosk Centre for Dialogue (580 W Hastings St).

Tickets for all events are available now - reserve your seat early to avoid missing out!

A big thank you to our sponsors and supporters for making this series possible. We would especially like to acknowledge the support of The Schein Foundation, Vancity, City of Vancouver, BC Housing, Wall Financial, Banyen Books & Sound, Christ Church Cathedral, and Shaughnessy Heights United Church.

Living in Right Relationships

We honour that we do our work on the unceded ancestral homelands of the Səl̓ílwətaʔ (Tsleil-Waututh), Xʷməθkwəy̓əm (Musqueam), & Sḵwx̱wú7mesh (Squamish) peoples. We solemnly acknowledge the interconnected histories of colonization and systemic racism – including the legacy of the Residential School Experience, in which the United Church of Canada bears responsibility – that affect generations of indigenous people living in this territory, including many members of the First United community. We also humbly honour and benefit from the wisdom and guidance of leaders and Elders from indigenous communities, and strive to continually learn and improve our way of being in the world.
