This year’s Spirit Week 2019, from March 11-15, is all about making change in our own backyard! We are focusing on raising awareness and engagement on important issues and barriers faced by communities in our Downtown Eastside DTES, including the effects of opioid crisis, mental health and homelessness. We also celebrate the local people and organizations making change and changing lives in the DTES. We are also supporting the UN #Global Goals: #1 No Poverty #3 Good Health and Well Being #11 Sustainable Cities and Communities.

Throughout the week, we will be raising awareness and funds to support the great work of the following organizations:

The Downtown Eastside Women’s Centre
Binners’ Project
Hives for Humanity

Check out the schedule below!

Hope you had a chance to order your Spirit Week gear. If not we will have some extras hoodies and socks for sale during the week, plus lots of Hives for Humanity bee products from lip balm to honey. Stay tuned  for more detail including how you can order your Spirit Week Lunch from an Eastside supporter “Save On Meats” (SOM)!
