Welland, ON L3B 5X9
Niagara Region

You are invited as a key partner for:

  • A networking opportunity for staff from organizations interested in partnering to improve the health of Niagara (max 2 reps per organization)
  • A learning opportunity for participants titled “Equity Through *Allyship” facilitated by Lauren Burrows. We will be exploring best practices in equity through understanding oppression, engaging our strengths and privileges in acts of allyship.
  • An opportunity to develop stronger relationships around community based work.

Facilitator Lauren Burrows is an educator, community organizer and activist residing on Haudenosaunee and Anishnawbe territory.

This event is being hosted by an ad-hoc planning committee of volunteers from agencies and organizations across Niagara who attended the Healthy Communities Forum held on November 23, 2016 at Southridge Community Church. Based on participant evaluation results, it was decided that future forums would be held twice per year (spring and fall) focusing on topics of interest to the group.
