We loved sharing a unique virtual Breakfast for Dinner celebration with our community on Wednesday, March 24, 2021. It was just like the Equality Breakfast you know and love, but in the evening … and on Zoom! We were heartened by how many of you joined us (cozied up with your household or bubble, on your own, or alongside your colleagues!) for a joyous and thought-provoking evening, all for a great cause.

We were thrilled to present Know Us by the Stories We Tell: Imagining the Future as a Feminist Practice, a discussion featuring Kali Spitzer, photographer; El Jones, spoken word poet, educator, journalist, and community activist; and Jules Arita Koostachin, writer, performance artist, academic, and filmmaker, in conversation with CBC Vancouver’s Gloria Macarenko.

Date: Wednesday, March 24, 2021

Time: 6:30-7:45 p.m. (virtual doors at 5:45 p.m.)

Location: Zoom


This was West Coast LEAF’s main fundraiser of the year, directly supporting our work to change the laws, policies, and systems that harm the most marginalized people. Together, we can co-create a society that is just, equitable, and free from discrimination.

While we missed tucking into poached eggs and copious coffee bright and early in the lush Hotel Vancouver ballroom, we were excited to move online and be able to welcome those who are geographically distant and might not be able to attend in a typical year. As usual, live ASL interpretation and CART captioning were available.

We respectfully acknowledge that this event was organized on the traditional, ancestral, and unceded homelands of xwməθkwəy̓əm (Musqueam), Skwxwú7mesh (Squamish), and səl̓ílwətaʔɬ/Selilwitulh (Tsleil-Waututh) Nations—where many of us are uninvited settlers. We ask you to join us in uplifting the work of Indigenous women, girls, and Two-Spirit people in resisting ongoing colonial and misogynistic violence and injustice.


Silent Auction

Another bonus to holding our event virtually: we went online with our beloved silent auction! The auction raised more than $14,113 – a smash success, and all thanks to our generous community of goods and services donors and eager bidders!
