    On Friday, January 9 from 11 AM-1 PM, members of Rising Tide Vancouver Coast Salish Territories, a grassroots environmental justice collective, and other area activists will lead participants in a walking tour of the Territories. The tour will familiarize participants with the spatial history of struggle in Vancouver, and specifically with areas of the city that have been subject to the most extreme appropriations and displacements under settler colonialism and, more recently, intense urban gentrification.

    The tour is being organized by members of the MLA Subconference as an alternative cultural excursion to those offered officially by the MLA. Interested participants can RSVP for free here: http://mlasubconference.org/logistics/ or contact us at mlasubconference@gmail.com
