Participant bio – Britta Fluevog
Name: Britta Fluevog
Live: Mount Pleasant, Vancouver.
About myself: I am an artist working out of the Downtown Eastside and currently enrolled in paramedic training. I am a member of DNC and Streams of Justice, both of which work on justice issues in the Vancouver community. Through the DNC I get the privilege to work with people who are marginalized, are discriminated against, are on welfare, have barriers to services fight the system so that their human needs and basic rights are preserved; a system that wants to tell them what is best for them rather then listening to find out what they need.
Why taking the Challenge: I am taking the challenge because this is something I can stand in solidarity with my friends, to live and share the injustice they face in the hopes that some time soon they might not have to.
