COPE’s AGM and volunteer appreciation party is happening Sunday, November 18, from 2-7 p.m. at Holy Trinity Church on 12th (at Hemlock).
The AGM is your opportunity to join the discussion about COPE’s election campaign and to help us decide the next steps for our organization. Now that we’ve gotten people elected to City Council, School and Park boards, it’s more important than ever that we keep building a movement to win the city we need.
Right after the AGM there’ll be a social event to celebrate the work of all of the amazing volunteers and donors who helped during the election campaign. Come for the AGM, stay for the party!
