Defend the DTES Oppenheimer District and
MAKE THE DTES A SOCIAL JUSTICE ZONE

Friday January 11
2pm
Oppenheimer Park Field House
*Tea and light snack available*

For the last year members of the DTES low-income community have been involved in a city planning process to chart out a future for the Downtown Eastside. Meanwhile condos, high-end boutiques and architecture and other studios have been encroaching on the DTES Oppenheimer District – the heart of the low-income communities.

Come to this meeting to learn about the Oppenheimer district (which you may live in and not even know it), to strategize how to fight to defend this neighbourhood as a predominately and majority low-income community, and to vision what a Social Justice Zone might look like in the city of Vancouver.

Organized by members of the City’s Local Area Planning Process Committee
