Stolen Lives: Human Trafficking

BCTF members as well as support staff from many districts participated in the Stolen Lives Conference to bring to light the many forms of domestic human trafficking. The opening welcome by Kwantlen  Elder Lekeyten set the stage for the many informative presentations by Melissa Hyland, Charlene Bearhead, and Victor Porter.  The day ended with a healing ceremony which included participants creating witness pieces for survivors at the Truth and Reconciliation  closing ceremony  and in support of a new initiative of Project of Heart, Justice for Indigenous Women.
