Hello UNA/UBC/UEL Communities,
We have a busy few weeks with two important Electoral Area Engagement Sessions. First, on Wednesday April 28 from 7:00-8:30pm, please join me for a session on Inclusive Communities: Strategies for Enhancing Racial Equity and Inclusion
Many of us strive to live in and contribute to inclusive communities. Join experts Councillor Trish Mandewo and Dr. Beth Hirsh to learn more about how our seemingly innocent choices may contribute to racial bias or hinder inclusion within our communities and workplaces. We will discuss strategies that each of us can use to actively promote racial equity and inclusion here on the UBC Peninsula and beyond. See the attached flyer for more information.
Inclusive Communities: Strategies for Enhancing Racial Equity and Inclusion. Wednesday April 28th, 7:00-8:30pm on Zoom: https://ca01web.zoom.us/j/6044516562
Then, the following week (Wednesday May 5 from 7:00-8:30pm) we will be joined by representatives from TransLink to learn more about their Transport 2050 Plan and the potential SkyTrain extension to UBC. Come learn more and give your input!

Stay safe, and I hope to see you on Zoom these next two Wednesdays.
