INTERVIEW: LIBBY DAVIES ON 40 YEARS IN POLITICS

Libby Davies comes to SFU Woodward’s this Wednesday, Sept 21 for Libby Davies: Reflections of a Life in Politics. The former MP will be in conversation with Am Johal and Jackie wong as they delve into her four decades of experience in politics. An active member in the East Vancouver political scene since she was 19 years old, Davies got her start when she became involved with the Downtown Eastside Residents Association (DERA) in the early ‘70s. Over the span of forty years, Davies has gone from community organizing in the Downtown Eastside (DTES) to six terms in Parliament representing the Vancouver East riding. Davies sat down with SFU’s Vancity Office of Community Engagement to talk about her upcoming event.
