Speak Out 2022 Exploring advocacy using our five senses

Speak Out 2022 Using our Senses! 

This year for our annual celebration we are hosting a scaled-down celebration at the Alex Community Food Center called "Speak Out, Exploring advocacy using our five senses." Many of our stories are tied to our memories and we are exploring different ways to use our senses to share what is important to us. It is a limited capacity event and we are asking people to RSVP to us by July 3rd, 2022 if you want to join us! 

We will have healthy snacks during the event. It is a world cafe format and a relaxed celebration. It is also a masked event and we will need to follow the health guidelines of the food center. 

We will have themed talks about disability pride and culture, relationships and networking, a home for all, enough money to live, and services that we need. We will also be joined by the recent graduates of Alex's "Community Action Team!"  

We hope you will join us for the experience which will be held on Tuesday, July 5th, 2022 from 1:30 pm to 3:30 pm. The location of the celebration is the Alex Community Food Centre located at 4920, 17 Avenue SE. 

If you are feeling festive, feel free to wear PURPLE to join in on the celebration.
