The Indigenous Student Centre and Consent is Golden is very excited to present:
The Native Youth Sexual Health Network
We will be running a workshop on the intersections between violence against women (and two spirit folks) and violence against the land.
Jan. 22 Waterloo: 10am-12pm * The Indigenous Student Centre
Brantford: 2-4pm * The Circle Room
The Violence on the Land, Violence on our Bodies report and toolkit are part of a multi-year initiative to document the ways that the sexual and reproductive health of Indigenous women, Two Spirit and young people in North America are impacted by extractive industries, and to support their resistance efforts. Beze will be focusing on a case study of Aamjiwnaang and making the connection of what happens to the land, happens to our bodies.
The workshop is based out of this amazing document:
