Join us for an inspiring night of poetry and dinner to raise funds for
turning encuentro 5 into an accessible space. "Paths of Poetry" will be
hosted by two extraordinary women, Karen Schneiderman of BCIL and Martina
Robinson, a National Disability Examiner, who will be sharing her poetry and
engaging local artists to share their work. This dinner brings together a
spirit of sharing food and celebrating the poetry of our struggle for a just
and inclusive world, while raising the funds to jump start e5's transition
to wheelchair accessibility.

We will also present updates of the ACCe5S! Project, which has been working
together with people from the disability community in carving out plans for
an accessible front entrance and a brand new wheelchair accessible bathroom,
while connecting to the global movement for inclusive social design and
universal access. As e5 approaches accessibility, dozens of progressive
social change groups that meet there regularly and hold their events at e5
also become accessible spaces, further expanding our horizons and the
network of solidarity.
