The Hamilton Community Land Trust (HCLT) is excited to invite members of the community together for a walking tour of one of downtown Hamilton’s most indispensable neighbourhoods. Diverse and formerly affordable communities spanning King St East – including culturally rich centres for Hamilton’s Afro-Caribbean community – have recently come under the threat of impending displacement and development on account of the Hamilton LRT B-Line project. This project threatens to build the LRT not for the people who already live in these neighbourhoods, but for the Condominium developers jockeying to replace them.
In conjunction with our efforts to protect the residential spaces that make our community worth living in, we invite you to join fellow Hamiltonians on Saturday June 25, 2022 at 1:00pm for an informative walking tour of the area followed by refreshments and discussion in J.C. Beemer Park. Don’t miss this opportunity to engage directly with your community, and think deeply about the importance of these spaces and how to protect them. It’s also a great chance to meet local community advocates and like-minded community members who are serious about making Hamilton a more equitable and inclusive city.
The walk begins at King and Victoria at 1pm, continues along King towards Wentworth, and finishes at J.C. Beemer Park for refreshments and discussion. Please see the image below for more details.
This walking tour is supported by HCLT, Hamilton Anti-Racism Resource Centre (HARRC), Hamilton Community Benefits Network, the Hamilton Centre for Civic Inclusion.
