On a Roll: Mpowerment Board Game Night

 

Join us for a fall evening of hot drinks, good company, and tabletop gaming! We will also be facilitating discussion (in the vein of board games such as Dead of Winter) about resources: what resources exist in our community? How do we decide which resources are useful to us?

We will be meeting at Boardwalk Café (2546 Montrose Avenue, Abbotsford) between 6 and 6:30 PM. Mpowerment will cover your cover fee and hot drinks and snacks, so bring yourself – this event is FREE J

▁▁▁▁▁▁▁

Mpowerment is a queer-centered, trans-inclusive, and gender affirming space for young adults (19 - 29 years old) to meet, make friends, and talk about the highs and lows of sex, drugs, relationships and all the things that bring us pleasure. We work to create safer spaces for all young people including those of us living with HIV. 

This event will be taking place on the shared traditional ancestral territory of the Sumas First Nation and the Matsqui First Nation; both of these First Nations are part of the Stó:lō Nation.

ACCESSIBILITY

Boardwalk Café is a relatively open space, but its doorway may not be accessible. There are two single occupancy washrooms in the space. Due to food and beverages being served in the space, we cannot guarantee scent reduction or an allergen free event.

Public transit serves the general area of Boardwalk Café but not directly to the building, so transportation needs may affect accessibility. Please contact the Mpowerment Fraser Facebook page or MP at mpgallard@youthco.org if you have transportation needs for this event.


This event is FREE and open to youth ages 19-29 years old. 

If you have any other access needs not mentioned above or want to get in touch, please contact MP at mpgallard@youthco.org

Will you come?


YouthCO's office is located on the unceded traditional territory of the xʷməθkʷəy̓əm, Sḵwx̱wú7mesh and Tsleil-Waututh people. Our programs take place on unceded, ancestral, and traditional territories of many Indigenous nations across what is now called BC.

YouthCO believes that all youth have the right to accessible and affirming information about our health. We also know each of us has a unique relationship to our bodies, sex, sexuality, substance use, and harm reduction. For many of us, the words other people use for our bodies and their functions are not the words we use for ourselves. Throughout our website, YouthCO uses words for bodies and sex that we know will not reflect the full diversity of our communities. We have tried to, where possible, be as expansive with our language as we know how to while being as specific as possible. As youth leading the HIV movement, we too are learning about the best words for our experiences and do not do this perfectly. We invite any feedback about the language used on our website to help us move forward in the best ways for all youth in our communities!
