The Pacific Association of First Nations Women aims to improve community relations, personal well-being and connection to others. The Champions Against Racism program offers training workshops geared towards non-Indigenous Settler-Allies and Indigenous people. The Settler-Ally training workshop will equip participants with the tools to support First Nations, Inuit and Métis people. Both the Settler-Ally workshop and the Indigenous-focused workshop will help participants improve their ability to respond to anti-Indigenous racism and discrimination when situations arise.
