TERRITORIAL ACKNOWLEDGEMENT

We acknowledge we are on the treaty lands of the Mississaugas of New Credit First Nation of the Anishinaabe peoples. During our region’s rich indigenous history, these lands have been home to the Chonnonton peoples (or Attawandaron), the Haudenosaunee, the Anishinaabe and the Métis. We express gratitude for the sharing of these lands. We also acknowledge the tragic history between first peoples and newcomers. We strive to be accountable by acknowledging this history and cultivating respect in our relationships with indigenous peoples and the land.

    LIVING IN INTENTIONAL COMMUNITIES

Join us as Andrea shares her stories and reflections about the power and importance of living in an intentional community.

    Andrea's community development work has brought her around the world and back again. She has a professional passion for social justice education and nonprofit work. Andrea has many roles in life. Among them she is a family member, friend, community member, amateur foodie, and artist.

    WRAPPING OUR MINDS AROUND GENDER IDENTITY
  • Martha Savage
  • What would it be like to wake up one morning with your current sense of identity, but in a different type of body?  What makes up our sense of manliness, womanliness and other genders anyway?  Considering these questions and more can help us be more open and understanding toward people whose experience of gender is different from our own.  Come explore ways of understanding gender identity as we celebrate the beginning of Winter Pride Week.
