is an initiative that was started by Oxfam in 2011 to urge a federal leaders debate on gender equality and women’s rights. We have asked the 4 Manitoba provincial party leaders to come together on August 21, 2019 for a debate on gender equality and women’s rights. These are not fringe issues and we want to hear how the parties are working to advance gender equality and support women’s rights and the rights for people of all genders in Manitoba. Please join us in calling on the party leaders to accept the invitation to come together and share their platforms on these important issues.

Today we had a brainstorm about gender equality. What words come to your mind when thinking about gender equality?

In 1998, The Lavoie Inquiry provided a framework for systems change in Manitoba. It provided important recommendations for government, agencies and institutions that work across sectors with survivors and perpetrators of intimate partner violence. The Lavoie Inquiry Implementation Committee called for the “democratization of responsibility and engaging the community in the process of change” and working groups were established to help inform implementation of the recommendations. 20 years later, with generous support from The Manitoba Law Foundation, we are honoured to partner with @uwinnipeg and RESOLVE @umanitoba to coordinate a review of the recommendations and provide an update on them in Manitoba.

Wise words for your Tuesday! We all have the power to start important conversations and make a difference💪

Love this graphic from @elise_gravel Your gender doesn’t need to determine what you like!

Today many of us gathered together to say goodbye to a friend, colleague and mentor. Lorraine Mocarski was an advocate for children and families. She is sadly missed, fondly remembered and loved deeply by so many that had the privilege of knowing her. So grateful to her husband and daughters and the reminder to not take our time together for granted. Love your people hard and be intentional with your time. 💕

This Creator Wheel was designed by Indigenous survivors and victim advocates. The Wheel was designed with the intent of illustrating that the potential for seeking equality exists in all people, and that a life with the Creator and traditional spirituality at its centre does not support abuse (The Duluth Model).

This quote is a great idea for a July intention. Let yourself be seen!

Establishing boundaries allows us to clearly establish our beliefs, limits and values; which is essential to develop and maintain healthy relationships. Graphic by @crazyheadcomics

Today we attended the announcement from @maryammonsefmp about the MMIWG Commemoration Fund. We heard from several of the many organizations that received funding across Canada about the important projects they are doing to honour the MMIWG, survivors, families and communities. The red amauti project of the MB Inuit Association, a warming hut, ribbon skirt teachings, an opera called “Missing”, and creating leadership through story-telling are just a few of the projects. Learn about the projects in your community. ❤️

Grateful to have attended yesterday’s @mmiwg.ffada Community Forum and presentation of the Final Report of the National Inquiry of MMIWG, Reclaiming Power and Place at Ma Mawi Chi Italta Centre. It was an honour to hear Commissioner Michèle Audette and family members speak about the report and the importance of the Calls for Justice.

This week the National MMIWG inquiry released “Reclaiming Power and Place: The Final Report of the National Inquiry into Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women and Girls,” which includes 231 imperative changes that need to be taken in order to end violence against Indigenous women, girls and 2SLGBTQQIA people. "Each person has a role to play in order to combat violence against Indigenous women, girls, 2SLGBTQQIA people. Beyond those calls aimed at governments or at specific industries or service providers,  we encourage every Canadian how they can give life to these Calls for Justice." Please call 1-844-413-6649 for a toll-free 24/7 crisis line if you require emotional support related to missing and murdered indigenous women and girls. The link to the report is in our bio.
