Lunch and Learn: How to be an Ally

More than 40 people gathered for a Lunch & Learn on November 25, 2014 at noon, to consider how to be an ally to Indigenous women and girls. Some powerful stories of racism, exclusion and violence were shared, as well as initiatives that are addressing such challenges. Those gathered appreciated the opportunity to express their grief, their frustration and their will to become knowledgeable and respectful allies.

Thanks to: PEI Aboriginal Women’s Association for co-hosting with us; Justice Options for Women Project for providing refreshments from Beanz; and the Confederation Centre Public Library for providing space for the event.
