Join us on May 1st, International Workers’ Day, for a rally at Vancouver City Hall!

Gather at Helena Gutteridge Plaza at City Hall.

This May Day let’s gather in solidarity for a city that works for all of us. Let’s stand up for living wages, renter rights, affordable housing, and real action on Reconciliation, equity, the opioid crisis, and climate!

Let’s send a powerful message that we will not accept our coworkers, neighbours, and communities being left behind!
