about the project
This project is about building collective power amongst people who have experienced homelessness in Greater Victoria, so that their perspective is included in the decisions that affect them.
Our areas of strength
We use popular education methods to push the boundaries or traditional community-based action research to create the conditions for a network of people with lived experiences to work together to advance housing rights in Greater Victoria.
Our work is conducted on the traditional terrritories of the the Lekwungen (also known as the Songhees and Esquimalt) peoples and WSÁNEĆ (Saanich) peoples whose relationships with the land continue to this day.
Lekwungen means “Place to smoke herring.” We thank the Songhees and Esquimalt First Nations for their stewardship and leadership on these lands. We acknowledge we are guests on this beautiful land and are committed to doing our work in a way that enables Indigenous perspectives and power to grow.
