Accessibility info: Grandview Calvary Baptist Church’s kitchen’s entrance is at street level, which gives access to washrooms, kitchen and lower hall. One washroom has a stall that can accommodate a wheelchair. The washroom door opening is 86 cm, and the stall door is 61 cm. Multi-stall gender neutral washrooms. This is a communal space used by many groups and we unfortunately cannot guarantee a completely scent-reduced space. We invite you to come scent-free and collaborate to make the space as accessible as possible.

This event is hosted on the traditional, ancestral, and unceded territories of the Coast Salish peoples – specifically the sḵwx̱wú7mesh (Squamish), sel̓íl̓witulh (Tsleil-Waututh), and xʷməθkʷəy̓əm (Musqueam) nations. Streams of Justice is committed to dismantling settler-colonial infrastructure, striving towards right relations, and to being allies in the struggle for Indigenous sovereignty on unceded and occupied lands.
