Unceded and Occupied Sumas & Matsqui Territories
Red Braid (then known as Alliance Against Displacement) had connections with homeless struggles in Abbotsford in 2014-2016, during Dignity Village tent city and the Abbotsford v. Shantz case. But we currently have no organizers based in Abbotsford. If you are living in Abbotsford and interested in getting involved in our work, please get in touch.
