Pivot Legal Society

Working with Affinity Bridge was amazing! They took the time to understand our needs, our campaign goals, and our budget. They developed a beautiful, functional, website that pushed our housing work forward. The RedTents.org website served as a focal point for a national campaign bringing together divergent groups and multiple interests – it allowed for greater collaboration and community building. Thank you Affinity Bridge!

Executive Director, Pivot Legal Society

The Pivot Legal Society is a non-profit that does legal advocacy work in Vancouver's Downtown Eastside. They focus on using legal approaches to address the causes of and detriments to quality of life for marginalized members of society. The Red Tents initiative was conceived to generate awareness of and solutions for homelessness in downtown Vancouver. 

Challenge

We were approached to build a website for the Red Tents initiative that would help promote the campaign, create awareness with a blog, and allow Pivot to collect donations and sponsors online. 

Solution

We created a site, RedTents.org, that included a blog and social media modules. It also uses Ubercart for processing donations and volunteer applications on the site.

Results

Pivot has successfully increased awareness of homelessness in and around Vancouver, and is actively using the site to promote their call for a National Housing Strategy.
