Pivot Legal Society provides legal advice and series to people who are facing poverty and other struggles. Along with other close allies in Vancouver’s Downtown Eastside, Pivot has been at the front of the struggle to protect low-income housing in the neighbourhood, and used innovative outreach tools to spread the word about the value of the community in one of the most misunderstood places in Vancouver. Learn first-hand from Pivot about the tactics that have led both to victory and defeat in Canada’s most endangered community.

Lawyer David Eby lives in Vancouver and works full time on Pivot Legal Society’s Housing Campaign. He is currently running for city council with Vision Vancouver.
