Building Bridges Vancouver Ceases Operation

It is with deep regret that Building Bridges Vancouver no longer will be able to sponsor educational and informational events concerning the ongoing occupation in Israel-Palestine and will also close down its website.

We honour Donald Grayston, the founder of this organization, for his vision in leading the way, and we thank the many who have served on BBV’s executive committee over these past years. It is our hope that we’ve been able to build a few bridges of understanding that will one day bear fruit in a peaceful solution that upholds the human rights of all Palestinians and Israelis to live in freedom and safety.
