This event takes place on the occupied, unceded, ancestral territory of the xʷməθkʷəy̓əm (Musqueam) nation and the Coast Salish peoples more broadly. Our ability to work, play, and organize on this land is tied directly to the violence against these communities, past and present. Due to the intersecting forces of colonialism, poverty, institutional racism, and intergenerational trauma (among other factors), indigenous people experience overdoses at a rate three times higher than the general public. These facts must be in the forefront of our minds and actions as we undertake this work.

This event will happen come rain or shine, your ticket is NOT REFUNDABLE!

There will be no in & outs allowed at the event; once you are in, you’re in.

This is a wheelchair accessible event. If you need additional accommodation, please contact us 72 hours prior to the event.
