: Oppose Racism on our Streets

Calgary City Hall
Racist groups, the Worldwide Coalition Against Islam, and North American Freedom Fighters (formerly Canadian Combat Coalition) plan a march on 27 August, 2017 that they are dubbing "Deplorable Day", supposedly in support of veterans. Don't let this lip service fool you. They have no desire to provide support to veterans, they simply want to stand on their backs in order to attempt to lend legitimacy to their message of hate.

: Tribal Justice Film Screening

Glenbow Museum
Glenbow is pleased to welcome back award winning filmmaker Anne Makepeace for the Western Canadian premier of Tribal Justice. The film focuses on the efforts of two indigenous judges Abby Abinanti and Claudette White, who use traditional concepts of justice to reduce incarceration rates, foster greater safety in their communities, and create a positive environment for youth. These models of restorative are proving effective in addressing the root of crime, and courts across America are taking notice.
