I am very excited to host a youth-focused event entitled Reconciliation: The Power of Hope and Resilience.
The event will feature guest speaker Max FineDay of Canadian Roots Exchange. I am delighted to have Max join us so he can share his experience as a First Nations leader, who works with both Indigenous and non-Indigenous youth in the journey of reconciliation.
This event will further a conversation that was started at a Markham-Stouffville town hall in April 2018. At that time, we had Grand Chief Alvin Fiddler join us. Over 300 people participated, including many educators. The overwhelming feedback was a desire to learn more.
We hope this next discussion will:
- Educate, as we learn from first-hand experience about the impact of our shared history
- Inspire, as we hear about what is possible, through positive Indigenous stories and accomplishments
- Engage, as we join together with others on a topic on national importance
I hope you will be able to join us. Please RSVP to 905.640.1125 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
