Amnesty International Canada is co-hosting a free panel in Winnipeg with friends at Manitoba Keewatinowi Okimakanak and York Factory First Nation, and they would love to see you there!

Join four Indigenous women advocates in thoughtful discussion on the impacts of energy development on Indigenous women in northern Manitoba, northeast British Columbia, and across Canada.

In promoting intensive development through oil and gas extraction, coal mining and hydroelectric development, the Canadian government has emphasized economic benefits while largely ignoring serious consequences for wellness and safety that disproportionately impact Indigenous women, girls, and two-spirit people.

DATE: April 11, 2019

TIME: 4:30-6:30 PM

LOCATION: Ukrainian Labour Temple, 591 Pritchard Ave, Winnipeg, MB R2W 2K4
