Green Party offers free community space

Party members decide to extend a hand to those looking to do good in the community.

The Green Party is lending out its campaign space in downtown Victoria free of charge to community groups looking for a meeting space.

“We decided to make the space a community space,” said Rita Fromholt, West Coast campaign co-ordinator.

Fromholt and other party members decided to extend a hand to those looking to do good in the community.

“We put our heads together and came up with a list of groups in the community with similar beliefs and we let them know the space was free and available,” Fromholt said.

The office space was used previously as the headquarters for now-mayor Lisa Helps. The inspiration came from her idea of having an “open door” and creating a welcome space for community members.

“A lot of parties have offices that are just focused on their party work,” said Fromholt.

The Green Party is accepting requests.
