For a lifetime of activism

Lucia Kowaluk, has just been named to the Order of Canada for a lifetime of activism, throughout which she never flinched or gave up. Instead she faced obstacles and challenges with a remarkable courage. She is the founder of the Milton Park Housing Project, the biggest cooperative in North America. She also co-founded the Urban Ecology Center and is responsible for many other projects. Come and find out how she put her energy where her mouth is! This is an event that should inspire all would-be activists. Bring your friends too.
