Have a heart for First Nations

"Reconciliation is all of us." ~ First Nations Child & Family Caring Society

Will you have a heart for First Nations youth? This is what Sarah Auger, a doctoral student in Indigenous Peoples Education: Educational Policy Studies, asked library staff. And so, you can come to the H.T. Coutts Library to extend your hearts with us. 

From February 10-16, you can get more facts about inequities faced by First Nations youth in education, health, and child welfare; sign a giant valentine to let your representatives know you support this cause; or write a note of encouragement to young people in their work to achieve their goals. 

Have a Heart Day is a child and youth-led reconciliation event that brings together caring Canadians to help ensure First Nations children have the services they need to: 
grow up safely at home, get a good education, be healthy, and be proud of who they are. 

This event is promoted by the First Nations Child & Family Caring Society. Groups all across Canada are hosting events to support youth

In addition to events in different cities, youth and supporters will gather on Parliament Hill to promote love and fairness for First Nations children in celebration of Have a Heart Day. See images of more than 700 youth from 20 different schools (and their supporters) on Februrary 14, 2017.
