    Hope in Shadows Vote

    Every year, the Hope in Shadows calendar photography contest is open to Megaphone's low-income and homeless vendors. The final 13 photos that make up the calendar offer an intimate look into the lives of our vendors. 

    In June, roughly 40 Megaphone vendors participated in workshops, they were then given single-use film cameras to capture this year's theme of "heart and soul." We received hundreds of photos that our community jury has narrowed down to a top 30 that showcase the talent, hopes, and dreams of our vendors. 

    Thirteen of these 30 photographs will be chosen for Megaphone's 2018 Hope in Shadows calendar, which is sold on the streets of Vancouver and Victoria. Help us decide which photos make it into the calendar!

    Take Action to Stop Homeless Deaths in BC

    724 signatures

    MegaphoneHomelessDeathsReport_70percentincrease.jpgAt least 46 people died on the streets in B.C. in 2014--a 70 per cent increase from the year previous. This is the highest number of homeless deaths in a single year in this province since 2008 and it marks a stark increase in the number of vulnerable lives that were tragically cut short. (See Still Dying on the Streets, for Megaphone's full report.)

    Cities and towns across B.C. continue to struggle with a lack of both affordable housing and harm reduction services. With overdose deaths rising dramatically in 2015, evictions of residents in low-income buildings increasing, and affordable housing still not meeting demand, the number of homeless lives lost promises only to increase. 

    Each of these deaths is a tragedy - a person with a past and a future, a family, talents, hopes, and dreams. And many of these deaths could have been prevented. They are a tragic result of governments' failure to provide proper housing and social services. We can, and must, do better.

    We call upon the Premier Christy Clark and the Province of British Columbia to:

    1. Develop and implement a poverty reduction strategy.

    2. Commit to building shelters, social housing, and supports equally across the province so that people experiencing homelessness may receive the necessary housing and health supports in their communities.

    3. Fund the BC Coroners Service to create an annual report that offers deeper analysis and data about homeless deaths across the province.

    I stand with my homeless neighbours in the fight for safe, affordable housing and health services in British Columbia.
