Everyone is welcome and encouraged to participate in this year’s walk and letter-writing event to support giving First Nations children the same chance to grow up safely at home, get a good education, be healthy and proud of their cultures.
On Friday, June 10th, participants will meet at 9am at 59er’s (8011 Hwy. #2, Tyendinaga Mohawk Territory) and walk for approximately one hour to the Deseronto post office to mail letters to Prime Minister Trudeau. Some letters will be available to sign on the day of the walk or CLICK HERE. Water and fruit will be available, as will transportation back to the 59er’s Hall.
This peaceful and respectful walk, brought to you by the Enyonkwa’nikonhriyohake Program (Good Minds) and other MBQ programs, supports three First Nations Child and Family Caring Society of Canada campaigns:
- • Shannen’s Dream for “a safe and comfy school” – Shannen Koostachin.
- • Jordan’s Principle to ensure equitable access to all government services.
- • I am a witness campaign to help First Nations children grow up in safe homes.
