Indigenous Pride of 12 Community Safety Initiative announced a new Chapters & Chat Book Club meeting since the launch of our club on June 21, 2016 as part of the Government of Canada’s #IndigenousReads launch for Indigenous and non-Indigenous with the goal of education to help with reconciliation. These conversations at this club are facilitated by an Indigenous person, in a safer space to grow and learn from, specific to reconciliation. Reading the book is not mandatory in attending the discussion.
If you can not come but would like to be part of the club, feel free to post here in this Facebook event as you go through the books! We are about building up community, increasing Indigenous pride, creating safer spaces and reducing barriers.
