Join us for an evening of a delicious chili and the music of incredible local artists such as: James Wilson ~ Lil Acevedo and Marcelo Puente Lacey Hill ~ Kenny Kirkwood Brendan Jowett~ Ali Naraghi ~ Wild Blueberry Band.
All money raised at this event will be used for the launch of the "I AM AFFECTED Two Spirit/ed People" Campaign on June 1, 2018.
Background: The “I AM AFFECTED” poster campaign was released on June 1st, 2016, the first day of Aboriginal Awareness Month. This poster campaign was designed to serve as an educational tool to create an awareness of Canada’s Indian Residential Schools as well as the historical and intergenerational trauma caused by the schools. The more recent I AM COMMITTED poster campaign was rolled out in 2017. This campaign acknowledges that reconciliation is a collaborative journey for non-Indigenous and Indigenous people in this country. On June 1st 2018 we are launching the “I am Affected ~ Two Spirited People” campaign to educate and create awareness on how Two-Spirited experiences are different than other survivors of residential schools.
WE HOPE TO SEE YOU THERE!
