This event takes place on unceded Coast Salish Territories of the Lekwungen speaking people.

The Preparatoria Communitaria José Martí is a radical high school located in the Zapotec community of Ixhuatán, Oaxaca, engaged in an anti-colonial pedagogical project - breaking down the barriers between education and community and building resources and tools to reclaim language and connection to the land.

The evening includes a presentation by julio lopezhiler on the history of the school as well as its current goals, projects, and struggles (particularly against Canadian mining corporations). Afterwards, we'll move into an open mic to celebrate anti-colonial resistance in a spirit of solidarity across borders. All donations from the fundraiser will go directly to supporting the school.


Let's make this event a safer space for Indigenous, Black, and people of colour, queer and trans folks, and people of varying physical and cognitive abilities to participate fully and have their perspectives validated. Let's not reproduce white supremacy, colonialism, binary-cis-heteronormativity, ableism, sanism, classism, or ageism.


Entrance: Camas bookshop is accessible at street level, with a 1 inch ramp smoothing over the door sill. The door opens outward and is non-automatic. Let us know if you will need assistance with the door.

Washroom: The single-stall washroom, although on 1 level with the shop, is NOT wheelchair accessible. There is an accessible washroom across the street at Fairway.

Scent: This is a low-scent space so please avoid wearing scents. Here is a great resource on how to do so:

Smoking: If leaving to smoke, please move well away from the doorway to avoid carrying in cigarette smoke when doors open and take 5 minutes to air off clothing before coming back inside.

Lighting: The shop has fluorescent overhead lighting as well as a couple small lamps.

Seating: There are several arm chairs, a couch, a padded swivel office chair, and padded folding chairs available.

Kids are very welcome!: We have a children’s play area for younger kids as well as games and books for older children.

Please let us know if you have any accessibility needs. We are happy to work with you to make events accessible for you!
