You're invited to Turn Up the Volume with the Social Development Centre at their Annual General Meeting. It's on June 25th from 6-7:30pm at St John Church in Kitchener. Guest speakers include Brian Doucet (Canada Research Chair, University of Waterloo), Wellbeing Waterloo, and Suzi Gursoy (Participant Action Group). The event is described as follows, "We will be turning up the volume to project the strong and courageous voices of those currently on the margins and assist in making them a part of the mainstream. Our initiatives are like constellations, recognizable from afar and moving together in sync: Civic Hub, Peer Internships, Supports for Lifelong Engagement, Strong Neighbourhoods, Participatory Advocacy & Research. There are numerous ways we can combine and connect them to initiatives that share the same vision."
The Social Development Centre brings diverse voices together to find common solutions to issues such as affordable housing, inclusion and democratic participation, and consumption and treatment services. They strive to "amplify lived experience voices across the board and continue creating safer spaces for conversations that do not shy from difference and opposing views."
