Reclaiming Power and Place: An Evening with Marion Buller

 

ACWS is honoured to host Marion Buller Chief Comissioner of the National Inquiry into Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women and  Girls. Join us on December 3rd for an evening keynote and facilitated discussion on the final report and the role of non-profits, community organizations and institutions in forwarding the Commission’s 231 Calls to Justice.

“Many of the truths I heard from families and survivors left me in tears. At the same time, all of the families’ and survivors’ courage and resilience inspired me and gave me hope for real change in our communities. Since then, I have heard from many individuals and families who, as a result of sharing their truths with us, have made healthy changes in their lives. I am forever grateful to all of them. As we start to write our Final Report, I am reminded of the recommendations made by families and survivors. They are the real experts about what has to change.”

Join us for an evening keynote and facilitated discussion on the MMIWG Inquiry, the Final Report and the role of non-profits, community organizations and institutions in forwarding the 231 Calls to Justice.
