CHF BC enjoyed another successful AGM this past weekend (Sunday, November 21). Members carried out the regular business of a general meeting and several delegates were fortunate to receive prizes in the numerous draws made possible by group buying and other partners. But for many, the highlight of the day was the Keynote Presentation made by Diana Day.
Diana Day is the Lead Matriarch at the Pacific Association of First Nations Women (PAFNW), and a member of Kaslo Gardens Housing Co-operative. PAFNW advocates for systems change and to provide Indigenous, culturally-safe learning and seeks to offer holistic support to uplift Indigenous women and strengthen families.
Diana shared some of her knowledge and experience with CHF BC members and staff, and highlighted both important history and actions we can take now (including participation in the Kaslo Garden Co-operative Action Network).
