Statement of Support

To the Tk’emlups te Secwepemc, Cowessess First Nations and to all those who grieve and those who have survived but are forever marked by the residential school scheme, we join you in grief for the hundreds of children found and those not yet returned home. May we honour them with a renewed commitment to reconciliation, truth, empathy, compassion, action and change. In recognition of this commitment, the AWL has made a donation to the Awo Taan Healing Lodge Society whose mission is to protect vulnerable women and children, guided by Native traditional teachings, and to support its vision of nurturing families to live in peace.
