Discernment Day: the time we have been waiting for!

GVAT Discernment

Sunday, November 18, 2018 from 2:00 – 5:30 pm Over the past two years, Greater Victoria Acting Together (GVAT) has recruited organizations, trained over 300 people in community organizing and listened to the concerns of hundreds of people across the Capital Regional District (CRD). Now the listening season is drawing to a close and the time has arrived for the GVAT alliance (which includes Congregation Emanu-El)  as a whole to come to a consensus about the community issues we will work on. We will do this on Sunday, November 18, 2018 from 2:00 – 5:30 pm at Cadboro Bay United Church. Congregation Emanu-El wants to see as many congregants there as possible. Please make sure to RSVP at http://www.gvat.ca/discernment.
This is going to be a monumental day when in discussion and in relationship the GVAT alliance will build a consensus on a scale never seen before in Victoria. Only member organizations will have the opportunity to vote at this event.
