Lunch and Listen: September 21, 2022, 12:00 PM MST-1:00 PM MST.
Starlings Community is a not-for-profit made of peers and allies who are inspiring a society that can protect the health and promote the healing of youth exposed to the stigma of a parent's substance use through advocacy, peer support, and knowledge mobilization. In this lunch and listen, Nevada Ouellette (Starlings' Partner), Cassandra Bandura (Starlings Youth Volunteer), Aryn Stretch (Starlings Youth volunteer), and Agnes Chen (Starlings Founder) share how stigma has affected them and how society can support the well-being of youth across Canada in this 7-minute video release and Q and A.
A special thank you to all panellists who are generously and bravely sharing their stories and their advocacy to create a more safe and more hopeful society for Canadians impacted by substance use stigma. Thank you to Brock Davis and his team at DDG for being compassionate film makers, and creating a brave space where the volunteers could share their stories on film. Thank you to Equipped Health and the Public Health Agency of Canada for funding the film, and Nancy Lipsky and Colleen Varco of Equipped Health, for believing in and supporting the work of Starlings Community.
Lunch n' listen will not be recorded.
