Edmonton Strathcona Day of Action for First Nations Children

Edmonton Strathcona Day of Action for First Nations Children

Saturday, February 11th, 1:00pm - 3:00pm
McKernan Neighbourhood
Join us for an afternoon of door-knocking as we call for an end to federal government discrimination against Canada’s First Nations children. The chronic underfunding of services for First Nations children is a fact recognized by Canada’s Canadian Human Rights Tribunal.

We’ll be going door-to-door with information and petitions calling for this to be addressed. If you haven’t door-knocked before, you’ll be paired with someone experienced.
 
Contact us at strathcona@edmontonstrathcona.ca if you have any questions.
 
As well, we’re encouraging everyone to join Linda Duncan MP on Sunday, Feb. 12 at the Metro Cinema for a screening (admission $6 - $10) of “We Can’t Make the Same Mistake Twice”. This documentary follows the court challenge that led to the Human Rights Tribunal ruling about discriminatory funding. Following the film, there will be a Q&A with the director and Cindy Blackstock, whose organization led the court challenge. More info at www.metrocinema.org/film_view/6153
