The 15th annual Vancouver Peace and Justice Fair will soon be here, and we have many new activities, exhibitors, and sponsors, as well as returning favorites. Mark your calendars for Saturday, September 8, 2018 from 9:00 AM to 4:00 PM at Esther Short Park.

You have an opportunity to volunteer for this unique, important event. Help is needed throughout the day with various aspects, such as traffic control, setting up and taking down tables and chairs, providing relief for sponsors and exhibitors, face-painting, helping at the children’s craft and face-painting table, answering questions at the Headquarters table, etc.

You can easily sign up to volunteer according to your schedule, interest, and abilities. Visit the Vancouver Peace and Justice Fair page at SignUp.com
