The VFMP Municipal Advocacy Committee represents UBC medical students at the Vancouver-Fraser campus in advocating for the health of our local communities here on the traditional, ancestral, and unceded territory of the xʷməθkʷəy̓əm (Musqueam) people. In the 2021-2022 school year, we are planning on focusing our efforts on housing and harm reduction initiatives, such as advocating for prevention of displacement of people living in encampments, and hosting naloxone training for students. We are always looking for passionate & committed members, so please reach out if you’re interested in joining!
