CoDevelopment Canada is holding its Annual Solidarity and Fundraising Dinner, Saturday, June 2nd at the Maritime Labour Centre [map].

Don’t miss out on delicious food, music and dancing, delectable desserts, treats from around the world in our silent auction and a LUSH surprise. We’re looking forward to seeing you!!
This year CoDev is presenting America Latina al Dia with our annual International Solidarity Award.
For over 40 years, the America Latin al Dia (ALAD) radio show has provided Lower Mainland residents with key coverage of Latin American social, political and cultural landscapes from a social justice perspective.
Through the decades, ALAD has carried the voices and struggles of teachers, maquila workers, union leaders, indigenous activists, migrant workers and communities threatened by Canadian transnationals to listeners in Vancouver and around the province – many of them representatives of CoDev’s Latin American partners. As a bilingual program, ALAD serves both local Latin American communities and English speakers with a thirst for social justice and Latin American and Caribbean culture. Listening to ALAD is also a great way to improve your Spanish!
Created by South American political exiles in 1977, ALAD continues broadcasting every Saturday afternoon from the studios of Vancouver Cooperative Radio, 100.5 FM in the Downtown Eastside. ALAD’s volunteer collective has been made up of different waves of Latin American immigrants and local Canadians who produce the show weekly to bring to the airwaves the voices and struggles silenced by mainstream corporate media.
This event has earned a reputation as an evening where you can enjoy the company of good friends and have fun while supporting an important local solidarity organization.
We are honoured to work in partnership with you and hope that we can count on your continued support of CoDev by purchasing a ticket for the fundraising dinner. Tables of ten people are $750.00 each and individual tickets are $75.00.
Until then, enjoy these fantastic photos from the 2015 dinner courtesy of Josh Berson Photography!
