    Megaphone's Speakers Bureau workshop - October 8th, 2019

    Drop-in workshops hosted at Megaphone are ideal for individuals in the community, or for individuals attending as a representative for their organization seeking an interactive learning experience dedicated to de-stigmatization training.

    • respond to addiction and overdose with skill and compassion; and
    • develop a strategy for continued learning

    Megaphone Breakfast 2019

     

    Join the Megaphone community for the 6th annual Megaphone breakfast on Friday, November 1 at the Vancouver Public Library.

    This event will bring together Megaphone and Hope in Shadows vendors, supporters, and partners to build strong communities and support for solutions to end poverty. We'll celebrate our accomplishments in the Megaphone community and talk about our vision for the future as Megaphone grows. We'll also award one hard-working vendor the honour of Vendor of the Year!

    This event is worth waking up early for. 

    Doors will open at 7:00 am, and we will have your first cup of coffee ready for you! The Breakfast will be served buffet-style at 7:30 sharp, and the program will wrap up by 9:00 am. We're excited to be serving guests a breakfast buffet catered by DTES social enterprise Potluck Cafe and Catering - complete with eggs, bacon, sausage, hashbrowns and tomatoes.
