Tuesday, September 26, 7pm Topic : "How to Put Truth and Reconciliation Into Practice"
- Learning about what reconciliation means and developing an awareness to build stronger relationships in our communities, especially with Indigenous women is important. What does it mean to be a true ally? Please join us for conversation with Elisapee Sheutiapik , President of Qulliit Nunavut Status of Women Council (QNSW), which was established under the Status of Women Council Act of Nunavut on April 1, 1999. The Council’s role is to advance the equal participation of women in society and to promote changes in social, legal and economic structures to that end.

At our meeting of September 26, it was decided to support the October 4 Sisters in Spirit Vigil on Parliament Hill at 11 a.m. CFUW is interested in joining us and I will be sharing the information this evening.
It would be very helpful to have some identification available.
