Black Poetry with Amanda Gorman and Maya Angelou

Black Poetry with Amanda Gorman and Maya Angelou

There is a true yearning to respond to
The singing River and the wise Rock.
So say the Asian, the Hispanic, the Jew
The African, the Native American, the Sioux,
The Catholic, the Muslim, the French, the Greek
The Irish, the Rabbi, the Priest, the Sheik,
The Gay, the Straight, the Preacher,
The privileged, the homeless, the Teacher.
They hear. They all hear
The speaking of the Tree.

Edmonton City Council Update with Giselle General

the Anti-Racism Advisory Committee: the goal of the committee with 12 members is to make recommendations to council through reports on community based issues, continue awareness and dialogue on anti-racism, and recommend funding allocations on initiatives that address racially motivated hate.

For the Anti Racism Advisory Committee just like many of the ABCs, recruitment of members happens in the beginning of the year where people from all walks of life can apply.

Expanding Financial Literacy

Alberta offers Financial Literacy Grants

The two organizations are Enriched Academy who will receive $900,000 per year and the Canadian Foundation for Economic Education will receive $500,00 per year over the next three years.

JA (Junior Achievement) is the world’s largest NGO dedicated to educating young people about business. We strive to inspire and prepare youth to succeed in a global economy. With over 120 member organizations worldwide, JA brings a global view of business to local communities.

Junior Achievement will also receive $250,000 per year over the next three years to work with teachers to provide young learners in grades 3 to 6 with hands-on, experiential financial literacy programming, work readiness and entrepreneurship education. This programming will support financial literacy learnings in the new K-6 Physical Education and Wellness curriculum being implemented in classrooms this fall.

The Healing Journey: Indigenous Women and Girls

As a result, it can be easy to justify the harms experienced by Indigenous women and girls based on what they are “doing.” For instance, situations of sexual violence are written off due to involvement in prostitution. However, the Native Women’s Association of Canada’s research indicates that some women were “vulnerable” to violence only insofar as they were Indigenous and they were women. 

Approximately 6 in 10 Indigenous women experience intimate partner violence in their lifetimes. Yet, violence against Indigenous women and girls continues today through colonial institutions such as reserves, child welfare, and policing systems.

Effective Today | Alberta Reduces Isolation Period to 5 Days

The Province -in line with other jurisdictions – is reducing the mandatory isolation period for fully vaccinated people who contract COVID-19 to five days from the current 10. This was announced by the Health Minister Jason Copping on Friday. Fully vaccinated people are required to wear a mask at all times when around others outside their home.

Isolation helps prevent the spread of COVID-19 by reducing the number of people you could infect if you have symptoms or test positive by staying home and avoiding others.

Effective January 3, Albertans are legally required to isolate as outlined below:

Fully vaccinated (2 doses or 1 dose Janssen): Isolate for 5 days from the start of symptoms or until they resolve, whichever is longer, if symptoms are not related to a pre-existing condition. For 5 days following isolation, wear a mask at all times when around others outside of home.
