2016 Solidarity & Fundraising Dinner
CoDevelopment Canada invites you to join us on Saturday, June 4th (doors at 5:30 pm) for CoDev’s annual solidarity and fundraising dinner at the Maritime Labour Centre (1880 Triumph Street, Vancouver).Your partnership is a major factor in our ability to celebrate 31 years supporting women’s rights, labour rights and education rights in Latin America.
We are offering a selection of delicious Latin American food, our popular silent auction, beautiful Latin jazz to accompany the festivities and the always delectable dessert auction.
As in year’s past, we will present our International Solidarity Award. This year’s recipient is richly deserving for so many reasons. Sandra Moran is a renowned Guatemalan human rights activist whose work made her a target for death squads. By the late 1980s, she was forced into exile in Mexico, Nicaragua and Vancouver. During her years in Vancouver, Sandra became involved in solidarity work and the Canadian women’s movement. Upon her return to Guatemala in the mid-1990s, she came out as a lesbian and began promoting LGBTQ rights in her country. She was elected to Guatemala’s Congress as its first openly gay member in last September’s general election. We look forward to hearing Sandra’s remarkable story on June 4th.
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.
