At the heart of our work as the Calgary Alliance is listening. By listening, we build relationships, find leaders and transform our personal and community's struggles into winnable public issues.
All of this happens through our listening campaign. Listening campaigns how we ensure that that issues that we take on together are rooted in the experiences and struggles of our members. When we listen we don’t just listen for issues. We look for where there is energy in our communities.
There are over 500 places in Calgary devoted to cultures and spirituality and not one is specifically intended for Indigenous peoples. The Indigenous peoples have been asking for an Indigenous Gathering Place for over 5 years. Such a place matters not only to Indigenous peoples, but to all Calgarians as a space to learn and as a commitment to truth and reconciliation in action.
