Backpack Project Victoria BC hasn't added a story.
Please contribute to the Chrissy Brett Memorial Fund to help pay for accommodations travel and gifting protocols for her family who would like to attend the public memorial on Lekwungen territories in Victoria, on September 24th. All remaining funds after travel expenses will go directly to her boys Jacob and David.
Chrissy Brett, born Nuxalk nation, mother, grandmother, warrior
and loving Matriarch of the unhoused, a caring, compassionate,
courageous and tireless advocate for the most poor and marginalized
members of our community, passed away on July 17th, 2022. She gave
her life for social justice, spearheading and sustaining pop-up and
long-term encampments at Super Intent City, Camp Namegans,
Strathcona and Oppenheimer parks in so-called Victoria and
Vancouver, that resisted the routine displacement of the unhoused by
law enforcement and provided a safe sense of home and a political
voice to people who had neither.
She cared for everyone as if they were her own family. She was loving, tough, creative and effective. She worked cooperatively with authorities while organizing direct action to break the silence of the status quo. She achieved more results in getting affordable and supportive housing units to open than any housing bureaucrat in the province. She left a lasting legacy that will always be remembered.
On September 24th, noon- 4 pm, at Centenial Square in Victoria there will be a public memorial to honor Chrissy's life work and huge contribution to community on Lekwungen and W'SANEC territories. Please help us to bring family to the event and to support her boys.
Please share with community and networks.
