West Coast LEAF is looking for volunteers to help with day-of organization of our main fundraising event, the 35th Anniversary Equality Breakfast at 5:30 am on Friday, March 6th, 2020 at the Fairmont Hotel Vancouver.

We do this by delivering legal education programs, advocating for law reform, and conducting equality rights litigation. The Equality Breakfast is West Coast LEAF’s largest annual event, and the biggest legal event in the city. We need your assistance to make it happen!
