We promote the end to lateral violence in the name of peace, productivity and prosperity

In This Issue:

Practice Lateral Kindness on Pink Shirt Day (and everyday!)

Lateral Kindness is an approach to address lateral violence based on Indigenous values that promote social harmony and healthy relationships.

Practicing Lateral Kindness can be a powerful tool in decolonization and is part of our collective healing as Indigenous peoples

This Pink Shirt Day, our focus is on working together and treating others with dignity and respect. The COVID-19 pandemic has affected us all and shown the importance of helping one another and advocating for those who need it. Help us “lift each other up” and support programs that encourage healthy self esteem and teach empathy, compassion and kindness.

Head to Heart - Journey to Wellness

Be a Source of Strength for Someone

Support is really a two-way street, and showing empathy is a reciprocal process. Often, we wonder where our support networks are when we're down, but haven't taken the time to create those networks around ourselves. Be there for someone else, and you'll find that they'll be there for you!


Honouring the Land Get in tune with nature. Spending time outdoors each day is a proven remedy to lower blood pressure, reduce anxiety and stress levels, and boost your immunity.

Powering Down Recharge your mind and soul for the upcoming day ahead by turning devices off, and pursuing human-powered activities.

Weaving Network of Support Connect with your professional peers, family and friends to seek and offer support, and stay well and balanced together.
