The devastating discovery of 215 children at the former Kamloops Indian Residential School is a painful reminder of the residential school system’s horrific legacy of violence and abuse. The YWCAs of Alberta mourn these children, and extend our sincere and heartfelt condolences to the survivors, families and all First Nations people throughout Turtle Island. Without Truth, there can be no Reconciliation. The traumas that communities, families, and survivors of residential schools endured have been passed
The Searching for Izena: ‘Unwomanly’ Stories of Female Leadership at Edmonton City Hall podcast is co-hosted by Stacey Brotzel and Kim-Ann Wilson. It’s an unflinching, honest and colourful account of the past century and the role women played at Edmonton City Hall and will include interviews and accounts from several of the 13 surviving women councillors and notable Edmontonians, including Olivia Butti and Senator Paula Simons, and will also feature people who have yet to reach city council – even in 2021 – including women of colour and Indigenous women.
