Join us this Tuesday for better Education Funding!

Members of our Dickens community involved in PAN (Parent Advocacy Network) are holding an event - a protest if you will - to deliver hundreds of our "I Stand with the Standing Committee" postcards and our online petition signatures toChristy Clark’s Vancouver office, at Canada Place, to demand better funding for schools.  

We hope the media will pick this up and support us! The campaigns are still ongoing and we will continue to collect postcards [ Click here for Postcard Campaign info ] and petition signatures [ Click here for Online Petition info ] through February.


Representatives of PAN will be presenting the materials we have collected to date to staff at Premier Clark's office on Tuesday, January 26 at 10a.m.

We will need a large group of parents/guardians and PAN members to attend, to show your support (we need numbers) as we are pushing this to the media on Monday, January 25 in the hopes of getting coverage and generating greater awareness within the Greater Vancouver parenting community.

WE NEED YOUR SUPPORT AND ATTENDANCE!

WHO?  As many parents/guardians as possible.

WHAT?  To present all our postcards and online signatures obtained thus far to the Liberal Government. Let's make a stand and show up with a large number of people and signage!

WHERE?  Premier Christy Clark's Vancouver Office: 740 - 999 Canada Place, World Trade Centre, Vancouver, BC  V6C 3E1.  

WHEN?  Tuesday, January 26 at 10 a.m. (it will take approx. 30 minutes).

Please R.S.V.P. BY SATURDAY, JANUARY 23 by replying to this email: parentadvocacynetwork@gmail.com

We need to know how big our group will be, and to work on the final logistics before Tuesday.

We hope we can count on you to make time to show your support!

​Thank you,
Dickens PAC
