IPSMO is continuing to have “New Member’s Meetings” in order to make it easier for new people to get involved in the group.
New Members Meetings provide an opportunity to meet IPSMO organizers, talk with them and to learn about what the IPSM Ottawa is and does. We will also be watching one or two short movies, in this case about missing and murdered indigenous women, as well as having some food and just talking about various things in a social atmosphere.
We will also provide a brief introduction to the campaigns and support work that we do. Finally, we will address how IPSMO works as a collective.
The IPSM Ottawa has and does work on many issues as far as indigenous solidarity is concerned. We work with the Algonquins of Barriere Lake, the Ardoch Algonquin, the Akwesasne People’s Fire, as well as the issue of missing and murdered indigenous women, support for John Moore, and many others.
As part of the New Members Meeting we will be showing one or two short movies. We hope to show 2 movies by Audrey Huntley:
Go Home, Baby Girl , CBC News Sunday by Audrey Huntley, Carolynne Hew and Liz Rosch
