Peterborough Famour Six Committee

Organizer of When Canada Targeted Indigenous Children & Their Mothers, Lynn Stood Up!

A group of women who think it's important to honour Algonquin Anishinaabe Dr. Lynn Gehl and her 32 year dedicated endeavor to eliminate sex discrimination in the Indian Act which harms Indigenous Mothers and Children through it's Unstated/Unknown Paternity Policy. We want to create a safe space where Lynn can talk about what she has lived through and what she knows of Canada's ongoing discrimination against Indigenous Women and Children and Canada's harmful failure to remediate this.
