We encourage anyone interested in CCED to participate in our monthly community outreach. If you'd like to join, sign up below and we'll be in touch!
We need your help in fighting gentrification and resisting displacement and evictions in Chinatown! Join us for Outreach Day to help us mobilize low-income immigrant residents to fight for their right to stay and continue living and working in Chinatown.
- Learn about issues facing low-income and immigrant Chinatown residents, in addition to ways you can get involved in community organizing with CCED.
- Opportunity to practice and put your language skills to use when reaching out to community folks.
- We will have an orientation and training in the beginning where we go over talking points, outreach strategies, and an overview of Chinatown's current landscape. There will be time for practice and a dialogue on gentrification in Chinatown. No previous experience required.
Outreach Day Access information:
At Outreach Day, volunteers have the option to stay inside and make phone calls, or walk around Chinatown with varying levels of physical intensity and distance.
Training space is wheelchair accessible. All bathrooms are gender neutral and single use; two bathrooms on the ground floor are wheelchair accessible.
The training space is not fragrance free, and we encourage attendees to refrain from wearing or using scented fragrances, perfumes, lotions, hair gel, deodorant, etc, and if washing clothes to wear beforehand, not using fabric softener or fragranced dryer sheets. The best is to wash clothes with baking soda and scent free laundry detergent.

Furniture inside is moveable, and the space is air conditioned. There is ample street parking (free on Sunday) and paid parking lots nearby. Walking distance from Union Station.
