November 2018 Topics

You’re invited to join Fearless R2W in the month of November for some exciting topics related to Manitoba child welfare education & advocacy! Our events happen every Wednesday @ 6:00pm and are facilitated by volunteers from the inner city with lived experience with CFS. The events are free and open to the public, including children. We are able to temporarily provide bus tickets and food to attendees thanks to a grant from North End Revitalization Inc.. We are grateful to the City of Winnipeg/Turtle Island Community Centre for allowing us to meet weekly in your space & for our guest presenters & community members for coming each week.

      “When a Hollywood performer lacking distinction even as an actor (Ronald Reagan)
      can become a leading war hawk candidate for the presidency,

      by a war psychosis
      can explain such a melancholy turn of events.”

  4. “We must recognize that we can’t solve our problem now until there is a radical redistribution of economic and political power… this means a revolution of values and other things. We must see now that the evils of racism, economic exploitation and militarism are all tied together… you can’t really get rid of one without getting rid of the others… the whole structure of American life must be changed. America is a hypocritical nation and [we] must put [our] own house in order.”

    ~ Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. in Mayl, 1967
