The University of the Fraser Valley (UFV) geography department, in partnership with Abbotsford Community Services, presents an event on homelessness on Thursday, April 16.
The event begins at 6 p.m. with food trucks on campus to sell refreshments.
This is followed by a welcome from UFV president Mark Evered and screening of the student film Crossing the Bridge at 7 p.m. in room B101. The screening concludes with an expert panel discussion led by UFV geography professors Cherie Enns, Jonathan Hughes and Mike Smith.
This is a free and open event to raise awareness about a local mobile homelessness initiative, as well as to learn more about homelessness in Abbotsford and beyond.
