Knock Down the House: A Panel and Movie Showing
June 19 @ 7:00 PM - 10:00 PM
Join us for a movie night and discussion of women in municipal politics here in the Capital Regional District on Wednesday, June 19 at the Victoria Event Centre!
Together Victoria welcomes some incredible local women in politics (to be announced shortly!) for a discussion about their experiences running for election, sitting on council and everything in between.
Following the brief discussion from the panel, we will show Knock Down the House, the new documentary that follows Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Amy Vilela, Cori Bush, and Paula Jean Swearengin, four progressive Democrats who decided to run for Congress in the 2018 United States midterm elections.
Entry by donation – no one turned away for lack of funds. Snacks and beverages can be purchased at this event.
This event is taking place on the unceded territory of the Lekwungen-speaking peoples, specifically the Songhees and Esquimalt Nations. We are grateful to live and play on this land.
The venue is on the 2nd floor, up a flight of 27 stairs. There is a continuous handrail up the stairwell and VEC’s workers/organizers are available to provide assistance as directed. The staircase is wide enough that a person can NOT grip both handrails at the same time. There are three multi-user, gender-inclusive bathrooms with stalls, and one bathroom has a larger stall with its own sink and a grab bar. For information about accessibility of the space, please see the VEC’s page on accessibility: https://victoriaeventcentre.ca/attendees/accessibility/
